A trailer for the upcoming Paramount + show, Halo: The Series has been revealed, and it shows off Master Chief’s AI companion, Cortana.
Debuted during halftime at the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, the trailer also reveals that the show will begin on March 24.
The trailer, which can be seen below, also reveals that The Covenant are attempting to excavate what appears to be the original Halo ring.
The upcoming show stars Emmy and Tony nominee Pablo Schreiber (The Wire, Orange Is the New Black, First Man) as Master Chief, “Earth’s most advanced warrior in the 26th century and the only hope of salvation for a civilization pushed to the brink of destruction by the Covenant, an unstoppable alliance of alien worlds committed to the destruction of humanity”.

“In a first-person shooter, there is only so much of a character journey because of that wanting to maintain some of that character for people to pour into him or her,” Wolfkill said previously (via GameSpot). “So, TV gives us a long form ability to really focus on character and story in a way that’s harder to relay in a first-person game.
“The hope is you can play the game and you can have this sense of who this character is, and you can love that, and then you can stop and put that aside and enjoy this other experience and get taken on a different journey. And see that character in a different way without feeling like it’s impeding on the character you already have in your heart around the game.”
The Halo TV series will air exclusively on streaming service Paramount+ when it launches on March 24th.
