During The Game Awards 2021, the first official look at Paramount+'s upcoming Halo television series received its first trailer, showcasing Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief.

In a brief look at the series, we're introduced to a variety of locations, including what looks to be a giant space station. Throughout, we're also treated to looks at some ODST soldiers, as well as a series of Spartans running through a hangar before things end with Pablo Schreiber's Master Chief arriving on a battlefield.

You can check out the Halo trailer below:

Alongside Schreiber, Halo also stars Natascha McElhone, Charlie Murphy, Jen Taylor (the voice of Cortana), Shabana Azmi, Bokeem Woodbine, and Kate Kennedy. Not too much is known about the exact story of the Halo television series, but it is said to explore the conflict between humanity and the alien threat known as the Covenant.

It's unclear whether or not it will follow any of the games' storyline or creat its own narrative. The series will be produced by Showtime in association with Microsoft and 343 Industries, with legendary director Steven Spielberg also producing the series through his Amblin Television production company.

Filming on the series wrapped earlier this year, with a release set for 2022 on the Paramount+ streaming service.
