This morning, Showtime and 343 Industries announced production on the Halo TV series is set to begin, with the cast coming together for the announcement on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. The show is set to be released in 2021... Showtime announced new additions to the show's cast, with Danny Sapani, Olive Gray, and Charlie Murphy joining the show. Sapani will play war hero and caring father Captain Jacob Keyes, with Gray playing his daughter, Dr. Miranda Keyes, a... Commander dedicated to understanding the technology, language, and culture of the Covenant. Murphy will play Makee, an orphaned human who was raised by the Covenant and shares their contempt for humanity.
It seems like the show will tell the story of the discovery of the first Halo ring. However, only time will tell. The cast is absolutely stellar, and we can't wait to learn more in the coming weeks and months. Are you excited for the show? Let us know.
