Paramount has released a new trailer for Halo the Series, the upcoming TV show set in the new Silver timeline. It premieres on March 24th for Paramount+ and sees Master Chief (played by Pablo Schreiber) taking on the Covenant including the Elites. Check it out below.
Along with several tropes like the Energy Sword, Plasma Pistol and Warthog, the most notable part of the trailer is Cortana. Played by Jen Taylor, she features the same cadence as the video games (which is hardly surprising, considering she’s voiced the character since the Halo: Combat Evolved days). Besides Cortana, Chief is joined by several other Spartans.
The plot of the TV series revolves around the UNSC fighting back against Covenant invasion by using the Spartans. However, Master Chief seems to stumble upon something which leads to proof of Halo’s existence. It may seem similar to the video games but the Silver timeline is noted to be separate from the main canon. We’ll see how it turns out in the coming months so stay tuned.
