Many years ago, 343 Industries announced that a Halo TV show was in the works. Acclaimed filmmakers like Steven Spielberg were also attached to the project. After that, we didn't hear any details about the series, and many suspected that plans had been scrapped. Recently, 343 Industries surprised everyone by officially revealing Showtime's Halo show. Steven Spielberg, Kyle Killen, and Rupert Wyatt are all working on the project.
Unfortunately, the reveal left us with more questions than answers. Who would be the star? Would Master Chief make an appearance? Luckily, an interview between IGN and Showtime's President of Programming Gary Levine provided some answers... or at least the answers you're looking for.
Levine said that Master Chief would be "a lead character" in Showtime's Halo TV series. However, he also stated that he wouldn't be the only protagonist in the series. It also doesn't look like we'll see Master Chief's face because Levine said that the mystery behind his face "is a key question and an important part of our series."
The fact that individuals who worked on Lone Star and Rise of the Planet of the Apes are attached to the project instills confidence. Hopefully the show will be on the level of acclaimed Showtime projects like Dexter or The Tudors. According to other individuals working on the show, the network is aiming to air the series in 2020 and it's being labeled as its "most ambitious series ever."
