It's been announced the Halo live-action television series will now air on Paramount Plus instead of Showtime when it lands in 2022.

The series has been produced by Showtime, in partnership with 343 Industries and Amblin Television. The show stars Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief and takes place in the same universe as the video game series.

"Suit up, Spartans! Produced by @SHOWTIME, @Halo will premiere on #ParamountPlus in 2022."

David Nevins, Chief Creative Officer of CBS and Chairman and CEO of Showtime Networks said Paramount Plus was on the hunt for standout series and Halo "fit the bill" for the new service.

“It could be a defining show for a newish service that’s got all firepower of an entertainment corporation behind it."

The source, Deadline, further explains how Showtime will continue to produce Halo for Paramount Plus and the network's creative executive team will continue to oversee it.

Halo's live-action series promises to weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a "richly imagined vision" of the future.

“It delivers the visceral excitement of playing the game, along with a much deeper emotional experience around the Spartans, human beings who got their humanity chemically and genetically altered. The story is about reclaiming what makes them human, and therefore it’s a very powerful story.”

Once again, the Halo live-action television series will air exclusively on Paramount Plus in 2022. Will you be watching?
