Before the first episode has even dropped, Paramount+ announced they have ordered Season 2 of “Halo,” furthering the story of Master Chief, the Spartan Warriors, and The Covenant. The news dropped as part of the company’s investor presentation on Tuesday.
“‘Halo’ is an expansive, world-building opportunity for Paramount+, and we’re thrilled to give fans a second season to look forward to before we launch the series next month,” said Tanya Giles, Chief Programming Officer of Paramount+ (via TV Insider), adding, “‘Halo’ will deliver a thrill-ride for fans of the game and non-gamers alike.” David Wiener of “Fear the Walking Dead” has been tapped as the Season 2 showrunner, replacing Season 1 showrunner Steve Kane (who replaced Kyle Killen in 2018, according to Deadline).
Fans on Twitter were eager to share their excitement, such as @wesleyharris5 who tweeted, “I’m already excited for the series! March can’t come fast enough.” While UK fans will have to wait until the summer to get their fill of Master Chief, American audiences will get their wish next month when ‘Halo’ releases on March 24.
