Following a brief teaser last month, Paramount Plus revealed the first complete trailer for the upcoming live-action Halo TV series at the 2021 Game Awards, with the show set to premiere on Netflix in 2022.
Pablo Schreiber (American Gods) will play the armored super-solider, while Jen Taylor will reprise her role as Master Chief’s AI partner, Cortana, from the games.
The clip doesn’t reveal much about what to anticipate from the program, which, according to Paramount, “will take place in the universe” of the Halo games and pit mankind against the Covenant’s alien forces. However, it’s unclear if Halo would attempt to adapt the games straight or develop its own tale inside the franchise’s universe. The teaser concentrates on a few short views of the Halo characters, including Natascha McElhone as Dr. Catherine Halsey, the founder of Cortana and the Spartan super-solider program.
Halo was initially announced in 2018 and was planned to premiere on Showtime in the United States. The series was switched to become a streaming exclusive on the freshly reopened Paramount Plus streaming service, where the popular franchise might help attract in new customers, after production was delayed by the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Halo is expected to premiere on Paramount Plus in 2022, though no exact date has been determined.
