HALO TV Live-Action Series Moves From Showtime To Paramount+; New Title Logo Revealed

It's been announced that the long in-development live-action adaptation of the Halo video game is moving from Showtime to the new Paramount+ streaming service. We also have a new title treatment...

Halo fans will be pleased to hear that the long-gestating live-action X-Box video game adaptation is still in development, and is expected to premiere sometime in 2022 - but it won't be on Showtime.

As part of today's long list of Paramount+ announcements, it was revealed that the series has now moved to the new streaming service (formerly CBS All Access).

Halo was originally picked up to series at Showtime in 2018, with showrunner Kyle Killen and director Rupert Wyatt attached to the then 10-episode season. The latter parted ways with the project, however, and was replaced by Otto Bathurst (Black Mirror, Robin Hood). Steven Kane (The Last Ship, The Closer) later joined Killen as co-showrunner.

Pablo Schreiber (Orange Is the New Black, American Gods) is set to play Master Chief.

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."

A brief teaser was show during the presentation, but has yet to be released online. We do have a new title logo, which you can check out below.
