TV - Halo

Halo, the award-winning and record shattering series of video games, is bringing its universe to Paramount+ in a new drama series, starting in March. Watch the full trailer...

Press Release

The 10-episode season, produced in partnership with 343 Industries and Amblin Television, is a live-action, scripted drama based on the hallowed Xbox franchise, with Kyle Killen and Steven Kane serving as co-showrunners and executive producers.

Halo takes place in an epic 26th-century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant. The series will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future.

The series stars Pablo Schreiber (First Man) as Master Chief, along with co-stars including Natascha McElhone, Bokeem Woodbine, Shabana Azmi, Bentley Kalu, Natasha Culzac, Kate Kennedy and Yerin Ha.

● Schreiber’s Master Chief is Earth’s most advanced warrior in the 26th century and the only hope of salvation for a civilization pushed to the brink of destruction by the Covenant, an unstoppable alliance of alien worlds committed to the destruction of humanity.

● Ha’s Quan Ah is a shrewd, audacious 16-year-old from the Outer Colonies who meets Master Chief at a fateful time for them both.

● McElhone’s Dr. Catherine Halsey is the brilliant, conflicted, and inscrutable creator of the Spartan supersoldiers.

● McElhone’s second role is as Cortana, the most advanced AI in human history – and potentially the key to the survival of the human race.

● Woodbine’s Soren-066 is a morally complex privateer at the fringes of human civilization whose fate will bring him into conflict with his former military masters and his old friend, the Master Chief.

● Azmi’s Admiral Margaret Parangosky is the head of the Office of Naval Intelligence.

● Kalu’s Spartan Vannak-134 is a cybernetically augmented supersoldier conscripted at childhood who serves as the defacto deputy to the Master Chief.

● Culzac’s Spartan Riz-028 is focused, professional and deadly, cybernetically enhanced killing machine.

● Kennedy’s Spartan Kai-125 is an all-new courageous, curious and deadly Spartan supersoldier.

● Sapani’s Captain Jacob Keyes is a dedicated military man, a war hero and a caring father. He finds that working alongside his daughter and his ex-wife is usually the cause of conflict rather than comfort.

● Gray’s Dr. Miranda Keyes is a brilliant UNSC Commander who is dedicated to understanding the technology, language and culture of the Covenant, but she’ll have to learn to navigate the politics of the UNSC to get what she wants.

● Murphy’s Makee is an orphaned human who was raised by the alien Covenant and shares their contempt for humanity.

Halo is executive produced by Killen, Kane, Rupert Wyatt and Scott Pennington, and Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank for Amblin Television. 

Halo premieres on Paramount+ on 24th March.
