A new trailer for Paramount Plus’ upcoming Halo series has been released for the show’s debut next week.
Halo marks the first major series for Paramount Plus, after it was originally slated for Showtime. A live action Halo project has been in the making for years, with Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson at one point attached himself to a film adaptation. The wait for Master Chief in live-action will finally be over soon, and the series will be streaming next week.
We got our first look at the Halo series in January at the AFC Championship, which teased the scale of the series. Paramount Plus has now released a new trailer for the upcoming Halo series, which shows off some dazzling visuals and more insight into the story of the first season. The new trailer comes after a critical screening at SXSW. So far, reactions to the video game adaptation seem positive. You can watch the new trailer below.
