Halo Season 2 Already Confirmed Ahead Of TV Series Premiere
The television and film industries have been buzzing a lot lately with word of many major projects adapting video game franchises to the big and small screens. One of the big projects that has been in the works for quite a while has been the live-action Halo television series. While the project faced several delays and even a platform change, trailers from the past few months have shown it will soon be a reality. While the television series has yet to premiere or prove its merit with audiences and critics, it appears that Paramount has already greenlit Halo season 2.

ViacomCBS has shared a new press release on their official website announcing their greenlighting of Halo season 2. The release acknowledges that the renewal comes before the series premiere on March 24th. Along with the renewal, ViacomCBS announces that David Weiner will be joining the second season as showrunner and executive producer. Weiner, best known for his work on television series like The Killing and Brave New World, replaces Steven Kane, who served as showrunner during the first season. Paramount+’s chief content officer David Nevins had this to say about the renewal:
HALO takes us into a dazzling world that we believe will enthrall audiences as much with its electrifying visuals as its bold, character-driven storytelling. This second-season pickup reflects the confidence we have in the power of this epic series to attract and engage viewers. HALO has been a great collaboration with Amblin and 343 Industries, and we are all grateful for the opportunity to continue it.”
Given that the television series has not yet premiered, it is not yet known what part of the Halo franchise that Halo season 2 might adapt into live-action, or if it will tell an original story of its own. The press release and other materials have placed an emphasis on Pablo Schrieber, Natascha McElhone and Jen Taylor as Master Chief, Dr. Halsey and Cortana, it is expected that these actors and characters will return for season 2. Much will be revealed as season 1 airs and hopefully this is just the beginning of Master Chief’s live-action exploits. Glad to see his self-regenerating abilities work in television at least.
