Finally, fans of Microsoft’s iconic Halo series have something to cheer about. After years of trying to get a TV or movie off the ground, we finally got our first teaser and the hype is building.
For years, Halo fans everywhere have been waiting for the moment when the popular video game hits Hollywood. Instead of a movie, the FPS gets its own TV series.
Showtime’s Halo series was first announced in 2013, with Steven Spielberg serving as executive producer. Production has since moved to Showtime and was in development for four years until a 10-episode season was ordered on June 28, 2018.
As things stalled, fans worried about his future, but that fear is gone now that everyone has finally gotten a glimpse of what’s to come.

The Halo TV series will debut on Thursday, March 24th and will stream exclusively on Outstanding+.
It appears that only the first episode will be available initially, with more episodes coming weekly from that point on.
Fans can expect a total of nine episodes, with a second season already greenlit.
The Halo TV series will notably feature Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief. The actor and the official account revealed a first look at the helmet, which he will be wearing, in an Instagram post on November 10, 2020.
“Do you think we’re done? We’re just getting started,” reads the caption.
Jen Taylor, who voices Cortana in the games, will reprise her role on the TV show, while Natascha McElhone will portray Catherine Halsey.
The series is set to take place during the 26th century conflict between humans and the alien species known as the Covenant.
Other than that, not much is known about the show at the moment, though Showtime CEO David Nevins called it the network’s “most ambitious series ever.”
“We expect the audience that has been expecting it for years to be thoroughly rewarded,” he says added.
