Everyone who ever owned an XBOX back in the day had the privilege to play one of the best first-person shooters ever released, Halo. Not only that the gameplay was fantastic, but the original soundtracks from the original three games are something everyone knows, even those who did not play the game. Now, here we are, 21 years later, finally getting that long-awaited TV adaptation.
When is the Halo TV series coming out?
Something that many people do not know about our favorite esports betting game’s TV show is that it started developing back in 2015. However, due to some ups and downs, it was getting postponed until filming finally began in October 2019. Then, the pandemic happened, and there were some issues in filming during 2020, but it continued again in February 2021.
The series is officially coming out on March 24th, 2022, and it will be available on the Paramount+ streaming services. It was quite a long wait for the series to come out, but we are incredibly thrilled that it is happening.
There is also a fantastic trailer!
As you might know, Cincinnati Bengals were playing the Kansas City Chiefs for the chance to go to the Super Bowl on January 30th, and during halftime, we got to see the official trailer for the TV series. The trailer is fantastic, and it reveals several exciting things.
For starters, we get to see Pablo Schreiber’s Master Chief! Of course, we already got to see him during the Game Awards 2021, but this time we got a bit of information on the action and what the story is all about. We also know that Jen Taylor is the voice of the famous…or infamous, depending on how you look at it, AI known as Cortana.
What will the story be?
Well, from what is known so far, the TV series is going to be different from the game’s cannon story. It will follow the Master Chief’s story where viewers will be able to meet new character’s like Soren-066 played by Bokeem Woodbine, Makee played by Charlie Murphy, Catherine Halsey played by Natascha McElhone, Miranda Keyes played by Olive Gray, Jacob Keyes played by Danny Sapani, and Quan Ah played by Yerin Ha.

While a lot was revealed with the recent trailer, there is still quite much to discover about the series. We are all hoping that the first nine episodes will be as good as the recent adaptation of League of Legends into Arcane and that the streak of bad video game adaptations is finally over.
On the other hand, if you are looking for some Halo content to kill your time, make sure to check out the Halo Championship series, which is the first top-tier Halo LAN event in the last two years!
There is nothing better than getting hyped for the upcoming series than enjoying some fantastic Halo gameplay.
