The Master Chief Is Heading To Paramount+ In 2022

ShowTime‘s long-teased Halo video game adaptation has made the news this week. ViacomCBS has announced that the highly anticipated show will be releasing on Paramount+ in the first quarter of 2022.

On the move to Paramount+

This news comes from a report from Deadline, which says the network disclosed it had moved the Halo series to Paramount+ during this week’s ViacomCBS Streaming Event.

According to CBS Chief Officer David Nevins, the early film-footage of the upcoming show convinced the studio to move the space drama over to Paramount+ to act as a flagship for their new streaming service.

“We were on the hunt for signature shows beyond the Star Trek franchise on CBS All Access and were thinking, what could be a defining series for Paramount+,” said Nevins. “Halo always fit the bill, but seeing it, we felt it would work.”

Halo‘s Production

Despite the show’s production halting at 55%-60% completion prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Halo has been looking for a TV-adaptation as early as 2013.

Even with the all-powerful Steven Spielberg putting his hat into the ring, this hasn’t sped up the production process.

The transition of the adaption moving to Paramount+ will not change much of the show’s development, as Showtime will still be leading the charge with the production.

The majority of the staff working on the project have been doing so since 2013 alongside assistance from Steven Spielberg and 343 Industries – the studio behind the Halo video game series.
