Master Chief Live Action

The Paramount+ live-action series Halo made its debut earlier this week, and it seems the first episode launch has been a huge success for the streaming service.

According to Paramount (via Deadline), Halo is now the service's "most-watched" series premiere ever (globally) in its first 24 hours of release. The previous record-holder was the Yellowstone prequel 1883, last December.

No exact viewership figures have been provided, but '1883' reportedly had 4.9 million watchers. Nielsen's streaming rankings for this week should provide a better idea of how Halo has performed when they are released.

The Halo Paramount+ series has already confirmed a second season is on the way. And if you haven't already taken a look at the first season of Halo, you can get 30 free days of Paramount+ in certain regions with a Game Pass subscription.
