Halo: Series Adaptation Eyeing New Showrunner For Potential Second Season

In the buildup to the first season premiere of Halo on Paramount+, executive producer Justin Falvey has told media reporters that if the show were to be renewed for a second season there would be a new showrunner attached, with David Wiener being eyed to take on the reins.

.

Halo is set in the 26th Century, where humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant are at war, told primarily through the eyes of Master Chief. Halo will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future.

.

The first season had Kyle Killen and Steven Kane serving as co-showrunners, with Killen supervising writing and production in the U.S, while Kane oversaw production in Budapest. Both have since departed the series, with Kane stating that he was stepping away so as not to be away from his family for that long (two years in Budapest) again, but would stay on as a consultant if the show were renewed.

.

He was quoted during Paramount+’s time before the Television Critics Association that ‘I never thought it would be more than a one season thing because of the amount of work it takes’.

.

The series stars Pablo SchreiberYerin HaNatascha McElhoneBokeem WoodbineShabana AzmiBentley KaluNatasha CulzacKate KennedyDanny SapaniOlive GrayCharlie Murphy and Jen Taylor.

.

Halo will premiere on Paramount+ on the 24th March 2022.
