Halo TV show renewed for second series

The Halo TV show has been renewed for another season before the first has even premiered.

At the ViacomCBS Investor Day, network Paramount+ said that a second series was on the way ahead of the first season's debut on March 24th. The news was confirmed on Twitter by the Halo TV series account.

Showrunner Kyle Kane is set to leave at the end of the first series, with David Wiener of Homecoming fame taking over as showrunner for season two.

“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,” Paramount+ chief programming officer Tanya Giles said.

“Halo will deliver a thrill-ride for fans fo the game and non-gamers alike, as it ties together stunning visuals with a deeper look at the personal stories behind these iconic characters, all set within an epic battle for the future of humanity.”

Paramount+ chief content officer for scripted originals David Nevins added: “Halo takes us into a dazzling world that we believe will enthrall audiences as much with its electrifying visuals as its bold, character-driven storytelling. This second-season pickup reflects the confidence we have in the power of this epic series to attract and engage viewers. HALO has been a great collaboration with Amblin and 343 Industries, and we are all grateful for the opportunity to continue it.”
