343 Industries and Paramount have announced a second season of their Halo TV series has already been greenlit.
Both companies announced the news last night over on the Halo Waypoint. Despite the fact the first season is yet to broadcast, a second is already a go on streaming service Paramount+. While not fully confirmed, Natascha McElhone, Jen Taylor and Pablo Schreiber seem locked to reprise their roles of Dr Halsey, Cortana and Master Chief respectively.
Jumping aboard behind the scenes for the second season is David Weiner as showrunner and executive producer. He’s worked on shows like Brave New World, Homecoming and Fear the Walking Dead. Weiner replaces Steven Kane, who departed the show at the end of filming last June.
The announcement also includes some good news for the UK, as we now also have an idea when the show will arrive here. The downside is we may be waiting a few months after the US. The Halo TV series will remain exclusive to Paramount+, but the service itself will launch in the UK this summer. An exact date hasn’t been given, but the post confirms Halo will debut there in time for its UK launch.
It’s been a busy day for live action video game adaptations. It was confirmed during the same event that Knuckles will be getting his own live action TV show on Paramount+ along with a third Sonic movie. The news also comes hot on the heels of the announcement of a Bioshock movie happening at Netflix.
