"There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now" -Prophet of truth
Halo has been one of the biggest title that has ever been produced and has spawned a legacy over almost two decades long. A TV show was in the works since 2013, but it never came into light due to various production delays and issues which plagued the show, but all that is about to change as the Halo TV show has found a new Director and Executive producer in Otto Bathurst.

Bathurst has TV shows like Black Mirror, Peaky Blinders and many more so it is assured that the show is in safe hands, moreover the show will be produced by Amblin Television which is headed by legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg.
Showtime President David Nevins said, “Halo is our most ambitious series ever, and we expect audiences who have been anticipating it for years to be thoroughly rewarded,”.
Taking into consideration of how big the project is, and the content it consists it was always going to be extremely delicate and intricately difficult to bring it to screen but Showtime has ordered 10 hour long episodes for the first seasons.
The production dates aren’t yet revealed but it is expected to begin production later this year. Though it is thought that Master Chief will be making an appearance it is unknown if he will be the main protagonist in the show or will we see the world of Halo through the lives of other characters.
We will keep updating more on this as new information is made available about the Halo TV series.
