Today, during the ViacomCBS Investor Day’s presentation it was announced that the long-in-development Halo TV series has moved to the streaming platform. The series is already in production in Budapest after being in development hell for over a decade.
However, it seems as Showtime has moved on and given the series to sister company Paramount+. This would mark yet another sci-fi series to add to their list of original shows after several Star Trek shows have already been released. The project is being developed by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Production alongside Microsoft.
“It delivers the visceral excitement of playing the game, along with a much deeper emotional experience around the Spartans, human beings who got their humanity chemically and genetically altered. The story is about reclaiming what makes them human, and therefore it’s a very powerful story.” -David Nevins, Chief Creative Officer, CBS & Chairman and CEO.
Halo will stream exclusively on Paramount+
