the Halo TV series arrived to much fanfare earlier this year. Starring Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief and Jen Taylor as Cortana, the show’s had a mixed response from fans. Some of that is, in part, for its changes to the series canon established in the games.
However, it’s still managed to garner enough fans to warrant a second season. So with more adventures with Chief and Cortana on the way, let’s look at what we know about the Halo TV Series season 2 so far.
Halo TV series Season 2 – release date prediction
Paramount has been very confident with the Halo TV series. In fact, it renewed the show for a second season back in February before the first one had even aired.
At the time, Paramount+’s chief programming officer Tanya Giles gave a statement on the early renewal. “Halo is an expansive, world-building opportunity for Paramount+, and we’re thrilled to give fans a second season to look forward to before we launch the series next month.”
What the announcement didn’t give, however, was an ETA for this second season. Star Pablo Schreber confirmed to Collider that filming would take place this summer. Assuming that’s accurate then, it’s possible that season 2 may arrive around one year after the first season.
However, the first season had its fair share of issues during filming, including losing its showrunner. While we don’t expect major delays – we’ll play it a bit safer, and predict Halo Season 2 will drop on Paramount+ around mid-to-late 2023.
Halo TV series Season 2 – plot info and more
Of course, plot details for the Halo TV series Season 2 are heavily under wraps at this point. a lot of threads were left dangling at the end of Season One, not least the status of Cortana, John-117 and Makee.
Halo executive producer Kiki Wolfkill did, however, offer up a few hints on Season 2 to Deadline. “I believe really strongly that we have an amazing story to tell with him and we’ll continue to do so, and sometimes as we know with the Silver Timeline that it’ll be different than we’ve seen him before. But who he is as a character both as Master Chief and as John is wholly the same.”
“We see him in game continuity sort of farther in the future than where we sit with the show right now. I will add that part of who Master Chief is sort of the things that you don’t see in the games with John and the man inside the armor. I think that’s something that we definitely want to continue to explore in season two.”
As for the fate of Soren and Kwan, Wolfkill had the following to say. “We’re still working on season two obviously from a script perspective. I will say we love all three characters – the Master Chief, Soren, and Kwan – and they all have such an interesting dynamic together. To me, that’s something that I would love to see more of.”
