Players can revive Halo on the small screen when the highly anticipated sci-fi series debuts Thursday, March 24 exclusively on Paramount+.
Executive produced by Steven Spielberg, the TV show is adapted from the popular first-person shooter video game about a 26th century intergalactic war between United Nations Space Command and the Covenant, an alliance of extraterrestrial races. Pablo Schrieber stars as Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, the leader of the squad of genetically engineered Spartan super soldiers; Natascha McElhone as Dr. Halsey, the creator of the Spartans; Jen Taylor as the AI character Cortana; and Yerin Ha as Kwan, the daughter of a military leader on the planet Madrigal.
The first season features nine episodes that will air weekly every Thursday, with the finale dropping May 19.
Originally released in 2001 by Bungie for Xbox, Halo now spans 16 games, including major storyline titles and spinoffs. The Parmaount+ series has already been renewed for a second season.
