“Halo” Poster Reveals Fresh Look at Upcoming TV Series & Upcoming New Trailer
The adaptation of the mega-popular game Halo will arguably be the biggest series in Paramount+’s history. A new poster for Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television series gives us a closer look at Master Chief Spartan John-117 (Pablo Schreiber), one of the genetically and technologically enhanced super-soldiers engaged in a war with an alien race called the Covenant. The poster points to an upcoming trailer that’ll drop this Sunday, where we should learn the series’ release date.
Halo will be centered on the same above-mentioned struggle from the game, an intergalactic war between humanity and the alien race the Covenant set in the 26th century. The super-soldiers, called Spartans, were created by scientist Dr. Halsey (Natasha McElhone), with Master Chief Spartan John-117 as our focal point.
Amblin revealed the new poster on Twitter, which reveals that the new trailer will arrive on Sunday during halftime of the AFC championship game.

Joining Schreiber and McElhone in the cast are Jen Taylor, Shabana Azmi, Natasha Culzac, Olive Gray, Yerin Ha, Bentley Kalu, Kate Kennedy, Charlie Murphy, Danny Sapani, and Bokeem Woodbine.
If you missed the official trailer for the series, this will give you a better sense of how showrunners Steven Kane and Kyle Killen have approached adapting the game, which has been in development for almost ten years. After a few twists and turns, Halo ended up with Paramount+, and now, at long last, is set to grace our screens.
Here’s the official synopsis from Paramount+:
Dramatizing an epic 26th-century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant, Halo the series will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future.
