For fans of the Halo video game franchise who have been hoping for a TV series based on the game, we have exciting news for you. Showtime, the premium cable network has ordered 10 episodes for a Halo live action show. Check out the latest news on this below and let us know if this is a show you will be interested in watching AFTER THE JUMP!
Production is expected to commence early next year so it could be a while before we get any casting or story details but Showtime has a great track record so we can probably expect good things all round.
“Halo is our most ambitious series ever, and we expect audiences who have been anticipating it for years to be thoroughly rewarded,” says Showtime CEO David Nevins. “In the history of television, there simply has never been enough great science fiction. Kyle Killen’s scripts are thrilling, expansive and provocative, Rupert Wyatt is a wonderful, world-building director, and their vision of Halo will enthrall fans of the game while also drawing the uninitiated into a world of complex characters that populate this unique universe.” It’s unclear if the plan is still for it to later arrive on Xbox Live.
