HALO Live-Action Series Has Now Parted Ways With Latest Showrunner Steven Kane

The long in-development live-action adaptation of the Halo video game, which recently moved from Showtime to the new Paramount+ streaming service, has now parted ways with its latest showrunner...

The long-gestating Halo TV series has now hit yet another roadblock.

 The video game adaption's original showrunner Kyle Killen (Lone Star, Awake) quietly departed the show back in 2019, with Steven Kane (The Last Ship, The Closer) taking over. After overseeing production in Budapest for the past few years, Kane is also set to exit the series once filming wraps in a few weeks time.

This is just the latest in a series of behind-the-scenes incidents that have plagued Halo ever since plans to develop the project were first announced back in 2014, beginning with original director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) stepping away and being replaced by Otto Bathurst (Black Mirror, Robin Hood). Recently, we learned that the series has moved from Showtime to the new Paramount+ streaming service.

No reason was given for Kane's departure, but we can only hope that all of this drama doesn't have an impact of the quality of the final product.

Pablo Schreiber (Orange Is the New Black, American Gods) is set to play the lead role of Master Chief, and he'll be joined by Natascha McElhone, Bokeem Woodbine, Shabana Azmi, Bentley Kalu, Natasha Culzac, Yerin Ha and Kate Kennedy.

According to an official logline, the series will focus on "an epic 26th century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant. Halo will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future."
