Paramount Plus Already Gearing Up for Possible ‘Halo’ Season 2


Master Chief is closer to landing a new commander.


Variety is reporting that David Wiener (“Brave New World”) is in talks to take over showrunner duties on Paramount Plus’ “Halo,” executive producer Justin Falvey announced earlier this week during the TCA panel for the hotly anticipated video game adaptation.


Wiener’s status with the show remains in flux, as Paramount Plus has not yet officially renewed “Halo” for Season 2. A rep for the streamer says Wiener is one of multiple candidates for a possible showrunner position.



“Halo” is set to debut on the streamer on March 24.


Showtime and video game developer 343 Industries are producing “Halo,” which moved from the pay cable outlet to Paramount Plus in February 2021. Otto Bathurst and Toby Leslie will executive produce for One Big Picture, with Bathurst directing multiple episodes. Kiki Wolfkill, Frank O’Connor and Bonnie Ross are executive producing with 343 Industries.
