Last month, we received a small update for the long-awaited Halo TV series from Showtime. Speaking with TV Guide at the time, Gary Levine, president of programming at Showtime said:

“[Halo] is absolutely still in development, still moving forward and I’m encouraged by what we’ve seen so far. It’s still live-action, and it will definitely satisfy the fans of Halo and I think also satisfy the drama audiences of Showtime.”

But, as a fan of the video game series who has spent the last decade waiting for an adaptation that would never happen, I wasn’t really holding my breath. The franchise seemed to be one of those things that would never actually make it to the big screen, despite its big name and potential.

Turns out I may have been wrong. According to ComicBook.com, a new report from Production Weekly suggests that the Showtime series will be filming sometime this fall. This would mean that we could be getting a Halo series as early as next year, which is, frankly, pretty surprising.

The outlet goes on to say that this could fall in line with rumors surrounding the Halo 6 game. There is buzz that Microsoft has been hard at work on a teaser that would get fans hyped for a 2019. If so, this would mean that the show and game could very well come out around the same time, making it the perfect opportunity for them to advertise one another.

What do you think of this? Are you excited to hear that we may be getting a Halo series sooner than expected? Let us know your thoughts down below!
