The live-action adaptation of Microsoft’s iconic Halo series is about ready to roll into season two on streaming platform Paramount+.
Will he keep his helmet on this time?
Let’s not get crazy here, we all know that John-117 won’t be keeping himself fully-suited any more than he did in season one. That’s one of the biggest nitpicks that longtime Halo fans have had with the TV adaptation, though it’s certainly not the only one.
If you don’t know, the Halo show doesn’t exactly keep with the classic timeline, instead creating its own universe that’s purposefully different. That includes with the Master Chief himself, who’s not the same man that fans know from the games. And yes, that incudes that he has a penchant for removing his helmet.
Nevertheless, if you’re enjoying what’s been presented so far, or you’re just interested to see where it’s heading, then you might want to tune into Paramount+ on February 8th, 2024. That’s the date when season two of the program will kickoff, complete with the introduction of a ridiculously powerful, ancient weapon.
When all seems lost, a hero can emerge. Follow Master Chief John-117 and his team of elite Spartans against the alien threat known as the Covenant. As humanity’s best hope for winning the war, John-117 discovers his deep connection to a mysterious alien structure that holds the key to humankind’s salvation, or its destruction — the Halo.Paramount+ press release
