Production has started on Halo Season 2

Season 2 of the Halo TV series has started production.

The team will start filming in Budapest later this year as the crew are currently in Iceland where production has already started.

Joseph Morgan and Cristina Rodlo will join the cast a UNSC itellience operative and a linguistics specialist, respectively.

Morgan will play James Ackerson, a career-minded UNSC intelligence operative, while Rodlo will play Talia Perez, a rookie linguistics specialist. I didn’t even know Halo had languages as such. Can I take a course in grunt-speak on Duolingo?

Paramount+ confirmed to ahead of the Season One debut the series had been renewed for a second season. The new season will see Pablo Schreiber return as the Master Chief Spartan-117, and David Wiener will join the season as showrunner and executive producer.

The first season of the Halo TV show left us feeling very underwhelmed: trying to cram vibes and mystery of the Halo games into a structured, watchable narrative ended up producing a staid and predictable sci-fi show. Marcus Lehto, former Halo art director (opens in new tab), noted the differences on Twitter, saying it wasn’t the Halo he “helped make”.

For season 2 “I will say we love all three characters – the Master Chief, Soren, and Kwan – and they all have such an interesting dynamic together. To me, that’s something that I would love to see more of.” Given this, we’ll take a look at the Halo season 2 cast.

Halo, the television adaptation of the popular Microsoft franchise, set a record for Paramount+ by becoming the most-watched premiere for the streaming service. The show’s premiere knocked 1883 out of the top slot, which is no large feat considering the series is a prequel for the rather popular show Yellowstone.

Both shows were heavily marketed, and while 1883 had an association with Yellowstone going for it, the Halo campaign served a dual target for both a game fan base that has grown for more than 20 and those who like sci-fi shows.

We can speculate that a release date will possibly be early-mid 2023.

Viewer numbers for Halo were not provided, but 1883’s debut Paramount+ brought in 4.9 million viewers after it premiered behind Yellowstone, so we know the Halo figure was larger than that of 1883.
