Based on the popular Xbox exclusive video game series of the same name, the Halo TV series is set to premiere on Paramount+ on March 24, so in less than ten days. Paramount+ now released the second official trailer, which revealed what kind of action-packed sci-fi adventure we can expect.
Halo is the popular military sci-fi media franchise owned by Xbox Game Studios. The original video game was released in 2001, and since then, many sequels and additional games were released. The latest game, Halo Infinite, was released last year for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. The premise of the franchise is centered on an epic conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant in the 26th century. The TV series adapted from video games will focus on personal stories with action and adventure set in the futuristic setting.
“Dramatizing an epic 26th-century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant, Halo the series will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure, and a richly imagined vision of the future. Nobody can save humanity alone-not even the Master Chief. Meet the heroes who will risk losing everything to come together and protect humankind from the universe’s greatest threat in this stunning new trailer for the Paramount+ Original Series, Halo. Stream the premiere of Halo on Thursday, Mar. 24, exclusively on Paramount+.” — Halo TV series, the official description
