‘Halo’ Season 2 Trailer: Master Chief’s War Against The Covenant Continues On Paramount+ Next Month

For years I was super excited for them to make a Halo TV series or movie. It’s one of my favorite video game franchises ever, the Master Chief is hella cool, and the story is just made to be adapted into something bigger. Then it finally happened, on Paramount+, and two years later I still haven’t watched it. Forgot all about it. So color me shocked to be reminded of its existence by a trailer for season two, which arrives next month.

Pablo Schreiber returns as Master Chief, who is trying to convince people of the full extent of the Covenant threat to attack humanity where it least expects.

Schreiber is joined in the Halo cast by Natasha McElhone, Jen Taylor, Bokeem Woodbine, Shabana Azmi, Natasha Culzac, Olive Gray, Yerin Ha, Bentley Kalu, Kate Kennedy, Charlie Murphy, Danny Sapani, Joseph Morgan, Cristina Rodlo, and Christina Bennington, with Fiona O’Shaugnessy and Tylan Bailey as new series regulars.

Here’s the synopsis: In season two, Master Chief John-117 (Pablo Schreiber) leads his team of elite Spartans against the alien threat known as the Covenant. In the wake of a shocking event on a desolate planet, John cannot shake the feeling that his war is about to change and risks everything to prove what no one else will believe – that the Covenant is preparing to attack humanity’s greatest stronghold. With the galaxy on the brink, John embarks on a journey to find the key to humankind’s salvation, or its extinction: the Halo.

Steven Spielberg remains aboard as exec-producer, with Dave Wiener as showrunner and producer.

Halo season two hits Paramount+ on February 8th.
