There is also Dr. Catherine Halsey, who is responsible for the creation of the Spartans (the super-soldiers in Halo, not the scantily clad chaps from 300). Her inclusion may mean that the show will have an origin story for the Spartans, which could be fascinating.
Further characters from the Halo universe include legendary UNSC Naval Captain Jacob Keyes, his (and Halsey’s) daughter Commander Miranda Keyes, and original characters such as Quan Ah (a teenage girl from the Outer Colonies), plus new Spartan warriors.
Judging from the line-up, we can expect plenty of action and tragic moments from the Human-Covenant war.
It delivers the visceral excitement of playing the game, along with a much deeper emotional experience around the Spartans, human beings who got their humanity chemically and genetically altered. The story is about reclaiming what makes them human, and therefore it’s a very powerful story.”
Where to watch the Halo TV Series?
At the moment, you can watch it on Paramount Plus in the first quarter of 2022.
