Details about the series have been fairly scarce so far overall, but there are some things we do know. Pablo Schreiber has been cast as the Master Chief, and Jen Taylor has returned from the Halo video games to play Cortana. The show will also take place during the Human-Covenant War, and Master Chief will be working closely with a group of Spartans. Additionally, the show will also feature a human being raised by the Covenant, which is an interesting plot concept that hasn't appeared in the Halo franchise before. The series is also taking place in its own "Silver Timeline", which is similar to the main Halo canon but will deviate in various ways, both large and small.

Overall, it's very exciting that the Halo TV series is almost here, especially since it was announced way back in 2013 and has changed producers several times since then. Many suspect that the show went through "development hell" for several years, so it's great that it's finally premiering soon. While you wait for it, we recommend checking out the excellent Halo Infinite campaign. It has a great story and excellent gameplay, making it one of the best Xbox shooters.
