The “Halo” TV series, which debuted on March 24, is performing exceptionally well for Paramount+. It premiered on March 24, and in its first 24 hours on Paramount+, it established a new record for the most-watched series debut ever. The previous high-water mark was set by the Yellowstone prequel 1883.
Although Paramount+ did not provide exact figures, Deadline, which broke the story first, stated that we should learn more when Nielsen announces its new streaming figures.
“Bringing “Halo“ to life as a streaming series has been one of the most fulfilling projects for Paramount+ to date, and we couldn’t be more happy with the enormous fan response to the series’ launch,” said Tanya Giles, president of Paramount+. “We can’t wait for fans to see more of this great universe, thanks to our incredible collaborators at Showtime, 343 Industries, and Amblin Television.”
Although “Halo” has been extended for a second season, showrunners Steven Kane and Kyle Killen have decided to leave. Master Chief’s actor, Pablo Schreiber, is scheduled to return for Season 2.
According to reports, each episode of the TV show cost $10 million, making it one of the most costly TV shows ever made. With that kind of funding, it’s on par with Game of Thrones.
Before being switched to Paramount+, the “Halo” series was initially announced for Showtime. Check out GameSpot’s “Halo” show review as well as the 12 Easter eggs you might have missed in Episode 1 for additional information.
Season 2: Lone Wolves of “Halo Infinite“ will be released on May 3 with new levels and modes. Unfortunately, campaign co-op has been postponed even more.
