New trailer for ‘Halo’ TV series reveals more from Master Chief, plus a premiere date

The latest trailer for the live-action “Halo” TV show coming from Paramount Plus dropped during Sunday’s AFC Championship Game and not only did we get to see Spartans in action, but we also saw Cortana for the first time outside of the game, a teaser of some back story to Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 and the all-important premiere date — Thursday, March 24, 2022.

One of the best-selling franchises for Microsoft’s Xbox games console, “Halo” is a military-style, sci-fi/fantasy video game series that centers around the experiences of John-117, one of a group of super soldiers called Spartans, together with his artificial intelligence companion, Cortana.

The original trilogy of games centers on an interstellar war between humanity and an alliance of aliens known as the Covenant. However, the upcoming show won’t be a part of the current canon. Executive Producer Kiki Wolfkill said in a video posted to Twitter in December of last year that the decision should be beneficial for both universes.

“We’re referring to this as the Halo Silver Timeline as a way of differentiating it from core canon,” Wolfkill said. “In both protecting core canon and protecting the television story, and by that I mean being able to give ourselves the chance to evolve both and for both to be what they need to be for their mediums without colliding with each other.”
