The full trailer for Halo , a series based on the hit video game from Bungie Studios , will debut Sunday night during the AFC game on CBS and Paramount + .


To announce the news, the official twitter page has published a new poster that portrays Master Chief ( Pablo Schreiber ), hero of the videogame saga. At the center of the story we will find the Spartan supersoldiers , genetically modified to keep the peace on the terrestrial colonies; but when war breaks out with the Covenant aliens , they are the ones who represent humanity’s greatest hope.

The series was supposed to air on Showtime , but ViacomCBS found it more appropriate to move it to the new Paramount + service , where it will be released in the first quarter of 2022. You can see the poster below.
