Watch Halo, an American military science fiction television series created by Kyle Killen and Steven Kane, exclusively streaming on Paramount+.
Halo is based on the same-named video game franchise. The series is highly likely to create its own path through a science-fiction world littered with many of the same discarded machine components that it previously helped to manufacture.
The series is set in the 26th century and follows a war between the United Nations Space Command and the Covenant, a theocratic-military alliance of several advanced alien races determined to eradicate the human race.
It is produced by Showtime Networks, 343 Industries, Amblin Television, One Big Picture, and Chapter Eleven. If video game enthusiasts can retain an objective view, then the series can attract the interest of sci-fi lovers who are unfamiliar with the canon, “Halo” has the potential to become Paramount+’s signature show.
Overall, it admirably delivers an experience that honors Master Chief’s most ardent fans while also allowing novices to immerse themselves in its captivating environment. Developing a TV series adaptation of a video game is equally as difficult as making a movie based on a comic book. Thus, this series should be commended for making an effort.

Halo Season 1 Episode 5: A quick recap
Halo Season 1 Episode 5, Reckoning, premiered on April 21, 2022. The episode is directed by Jonathan Liebesman and written by Richard E. Robbins and Steven Kane.
Soren restrains Kwan on Madrigal while attempting to discover a way off the planet, but Kwan frees herself, creeps up on and knocks Soren unconscious after tracking him down, and steals his pistol and car. The UN Security Council is prepared to secure the Eridanus II artifact and return it to Reach from Eridanus II. While testing the relic, the UNSC emits a sonic boom, alerting Makee and the Covenant, who had been looking for it on Madrigal, to its real position.
As John begins to explore his past, he touches the artifact and recalls Halsey, and ONI forces snatching him as a boy and replacing him with a flash clone of himself; enraged, he attempts to assault Halsey before Cortana disables him through their mental link. As John awakens and mulls over his newfound knowledge, a Covenant corvette arrives and starts a surprise attack on the UNSC mission, employing both ground forces and aerial assistance.
Despite the UNSC and Silver Team’s efforts, the UNSC suffers huge fatalities, Kai is gravely injured, and the Covenant successfully collects and withdraws the Eridanus II artifact. As the Covenant corvette flees the planet, a solitary drop pod falls from it, which John investigates; as he approaches the pod, he discovers Makee.

Halo Season 1 Official Premise
Halo is set to follow “an epic 26th-century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant. Halo will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future.”
Executive producer Kiki Wolfkill revealed that the series is a standalone story that takes place within its own “Silver Timeline” and that is inspired by the game franchise rather than a continuation, adaptation, or prequel, explaining that they wished to give the two Halo canons a chance to evolve individually to suit their media.
Halo Season 1: The overall reception
The first season currently holds a 69% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 54 reviews, with an average rating of 6.35/10. The website’s critics’ consensus reads, “Halo is too derivative of better science-fiction series to emerge a fully-formed elite, but glimmers of promise and faithfulness to the source material signal it’s not out of the fight just yet.”
According to IMDb, the series has a score of 7.1 out of 10 with 25K votes.
Brian Tallerico from The Playlist states, “Its certainly not the kind of disaster that typically emerges when video games launch into other mediums. Only time will tell if fans want to keep watching or just wish they were still playing.”
On Metacritic, the show has a weighted average score of 61 out of 100, based on 19 reviews, indicating “generally favorable reviews”.
Is there going to be a Halo Season 2?
If you are enjoying Halo Season 1 so far, then you’ll be glad to know that Halo Season 2 has already been approved. It was recently reported that Halo Season 2 would replace the showrunner, Steve Kane, from Season 1, with David Wiener, previously seen in Fear the Walking Dead.
