After almost two years since it first hit screens, the long-awaited Halo Season 2 trailer has finally dropped. Grounded in the popular video game franchise by Bungie and 343 Industries, this Paramount+ series follows Master Chief and the United Nations Space Command in their battle against the alien Covenant, hell-bent on wiping out humanity in their quest for the eponymous world.
Season 1, steered by Pablo Schreiber and Jen Taylor, managed to pull in enough viewers to score a Season 2 green light, with production wrapping up in May 2023. To amp up the excitement, Paramount+ revealed the first Halo Season 2 trailer during the streamer’s CCXP panel. This sneak peek into the upcoming chapter is jam-packed with action, showcasing the Covenant’s intensified assault as they strive to erase humanity. The trailer also gives us a glimpse of Master Chief and the UNSC pushing back, along with the return of Cortana, sporting a fresh new look.
Halo, also known as Halo: The Series is an American sci-fi show on Paramount+. It’s based on the popular video game series. The series, produced by Showtime Networks, 343 Industries, Amblin Television, One Big Picture, and Chapter Eleven, tells the story of a war in the 26th century.
