The day the Xbox One was first announced back in 2013, the only Halo related announcement Microsoft chose to make at that event was that a Halo television series was in the works between Microsoft and Steven Spielberg. In the years since then, several Halo games have been announced and released, and we’ve heard nothing further about the project. Most people accidentally confused it for the Halo: Nightfall series which was included with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, but that project and the project first unveiled at the Xbox One announcement event were entirely different.

Today, Microsoft, 343 Industries, Steven Spielberg and Showtime have announced that a new Halo television series is coming to Showtime. The series is being produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and CBS. You can read the full official press release here.

Production of the show’s first season, which is going to be comprised of ten episodes, is expected to start in early 2019. No distribution method was given but the series will likely air on Showtime. Showtime is already included in most cable provider’s premium channel package.
