Showtime’s Halo TV Series Confirms Second Showrunner
The Halo franchise has been on a hot streak recently. The coveted Master Chief Collection has finally been announced to be coming to the PC platform and will include Halo Reach and now Showtime’s upcoming live-action TV series is making some new additions to its staff.
A recent report reveals that Steven Kane, known for his work on TNT’s The Last Ship and The Closer, will be joining Kyle Killen as co-showrunner for the Halo TV series. Multiple sources from the report indicate that this decision was made by Killen himself who wants to focus on the stateside production of the series such as writing and producing. While Killen may occasionally be on set in the future, the job of working on the physical production in Budapest, Hungary will rest on the shoulders of Kane.
The Halo TV series has been in development Since 2014, though not without several major setbacks. The series is set to tackle the Halo universe in a new way, aiming to dramatize the conflict between humanity and the Covenant through a series of personal stories mixed in with the larger conflict. The Master Chief will show up as well though, how much has yet to be revealed.
There’s still no word on when fans can expect to see Showtime’s live-action Halo series but the addition of a new showrunner does provide a little hope.
