Dating back to 2001 as one of the first video games for the original Xbox, “Halo” has been a 20-year sensation due to its multiplayer experience, epic graphics, and intricate storytelling. Now, Master Chief and the Covenant are embarking on an entirely different platform with the recent announcement of the “Halo” TV Series.
A part of what is known as the “Halo Silver Timeline,” which is separate from the core canon players are familiar with from the video games, the “Halo” TV series takes place during the midst of a 26th-century ongoing war between the United Nations Space Command and the Covenant. While the trailer reveals Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 coming into contact with an alien artifact (which may lead to a character shift for the super-soldier), many details haven't emerged about the series and its overall plot. The best way to find out is to stream in on March 24th when it is set to release. Our favorite part: You don't even need cable. Read on to find out how to stream the new “Halo” TV series.
