Coming 2020. . .
Showtime has finally green-lighted production plans for their long-awaited Halo series. The live-action show is set to begin filming in early 2019, as the first season will feature a total of 10 episodes.
It’s unclear how long each episode will be, but we’re of the belief they could be anywhere upwards of 90-minutes. The show was originally teased at e3 in 2006 for HBO by Steven Spielberg.
Well, twelve years later, fans can have something to cheer about after the unfortunate Halo: Nightfall web series flop a few years back. Considering Amazon is gearing up for Lord of the Rings, as well as HBO firing off with Game of Thrones spin-offs and Westworld; we expect the untitled Halo show to be the premier showcase on the premium network.
Look for more details on the show later this year.
