Despite mixed reviews, Paramount+ recently announced that Halo Season 2 had started production and confirmed both the new and returning cast members for the upcoming season. While new series regulars for the upcoming season include Joseph Morgan (Vampires Diaries) as James Ackerson and Cristina Rodlo (No One Gets Out of Here Alive) as Talia Perez, it is the returning cast that is perhaps most interesting. It would appear that Halo Season 2 will see a surprising return, ComicBook.com says.
More specifically, under the list of returning cast members is Charlie Murphy (Peaky Blinders), who played the Covenant human spy Makee in the show’s first season. She and Master Chief (Pablo Schreiber) shared an intense connection to the artifacts at the center of the season’s plot, as only they could activate them. In the season finale, it was specifically revealed that the artifacts would point the way to the eponymous Halo installation that the franchise revolves around.
Also in the season finale, Makee was seemingly killed. She had touched the artifact, sending herself and Master Chief into a trance-like state, which was only broken when Silver Team member Kai (Kate Kennedy) shot and apparently killed her. The last shot of Makee in the first season is her body on the ground, lifeless and apparently dead. But given that she will make some sort of appearance in Halo Season 2, perhaps it was not as cut and dry as that.
The full first season of Halo is now available on Paramount+.
