Halo season one is one of those shows that didn’t strike gold initially, disappointing fans of the franchise with its offering. But if there’s a season one slump, then perhaps a sophomore surge is in the cards. Halo season two’s trailer certainly makes it look epic. And it’s teasing one of the most iconic events from the games, the fall of Reach. Adapting such a huge part of the Halo games is certainly a good way to get fan attention back on the series. But it means the Paramount+ Halo series really has to get it right. Of course, it’s too early to tell how Halo season two will fare, but its trailer certainly brings epic sci-fi space adventures to the forefront.
Let’s take a look at the trailer:
Aliens, explosions, and true heroes. All this and more are on the table in this Halo season two trailer, and we’re happy to see it. A creepy voice proclaiming itself to be death and an instrument of extinction is also pretty good and highly chilling. It definitely feels like season two will bring fans more about what they love so much about the games. And that’s all anyone can really ask of an adaptation.
Alongside the trailer, Paramount+ has shared an official synopsis for season two of the Halo series. It reads:
In season two, Master Chief John-117 (Pablo Schreiber) leads his team of elite Spartans against the alien threat known as the Covenant. In the wake of a shocking event on a desolate planet, John cannot shake the feeling that his war is about to change and risks everything to prove what no one else will believe – that the Covenant is preparing to attack humanity’s greatest stronghold. With the galaxy on the brink, John embarks on a journey to find the key to humankind’s salvation, or its extinction: the Halo.
For those wanting to tune into Halo season two after watching its trailer but maybe haven’t watched season one, Paramount+ has an answer for you. You can catch up on current events with a two-minute Halo season one recap. That feels like just the right amount of time to us.
Season two of Halo will release on February 8. It will stream on Paramount+. Two episodes will become available on the premiere date and a new episode will follow every Thursday through March 21.
