As expected, Paramount Pictures released last night the first trailer for Halo The Series, the TV series based on Microsoft’s popular video game franchise starring The Master Chief.

In it we can see, in addition to the popular spartan, Cortana, the artificial intelligence assistant, his inseparable companion (or almost), some Elites, ships, vehicles and various scenarios. The story does not seem to follow any specific storyline from any of the games in the franchise.

New narrative thread for the Halo universe

The series will introduce three completely new characters to the “Halo” universe. Kalu will step into the role of Spartan Vannak-134, a cybernetically augmented super soldier who was recruited during his childhood who currently serves as the Master Chief’s de facto deputy.
Culzac will play Spartan Riz-028. a focused, professional and deadly killing machine, also cybernetically enhanced. Kennedy, meanwhile, will be Spartan Kai-125, a fearless, curious and deadly Spartan super soldier.

Pablo Shreiber (American Gods) plays the Master Chief, while the role of Cortana is played by Jen Taylor, who has voiced and expressed her since the first Halo was released in 2001. Natasha McElhone, who was originally going to play Cortana as well, will finally only play Dr. Catherine Halsey.

The first season has 10 episodes and will premiere on March 24.

The series is written by Kyle Killen and Steven Kane. The 10 episodes of this first season will be directed by Otto Bathurst, Jonathan Lebesman, M. J. Bassett, Roel Reiné and Jet Wilkinson.

Halo The Series will premiere next March 24 exclusively on Paramount+.
Recall that the series was first announced in 2018 and was going to be Showtime’s thing, but subsequently Paramount kept it for its streaming service. It was initially scheduled to premiere during the first quarter of last year, but the pandemic caused by COVID-19 has delayed it until now.
