Halo has been one of the most popular gaming franchises of all time, but the series never received any type of live action TV series or movie.

After nearly two decades, we are now finally going to get a live action TV show next year.

As announced via a press release, SHOWTIME has teamed up with 343 Industries to bring us a live action TV series next year. The first run of the TV show will be 10 episodes long.

Each episode will be one hour long and some of them will be directed by Hollywood director Rupert Wyatt. Some people may know him more as the director of the 2011 film Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Another person responsible for the Halo TV series is Kyle Killen who will be the show's runner, writer and executive producer.

Some of the shows Killen has been responsible for in the past include the likes of Awake, Lone Star and more.

“Halo is our most ambitious series ever, and we expect audiences who have been anticipating it for years to be thoroughly rewarded,” said Nevins. “In the history of television, there simply has never been enough great science fiction. Kyle Killen’s scripts are thrilling, expansive and provocative, Rupert Wyatt is a wonderful, world-building director, and their vision of Halo will enthral fans of the game while also drawing the uninitiated into a world of complex characters that populate this unique universe.”

“This is a truly exciting moment for the Halo franchise,” stated Kiki Wolfkill, head of Halo Transmedia at 343 Industries. “Together with our creative and production partners at SHOWTIME and Amblin Television, the Halo television series will represent new and exciting way for fans to enter and engage with the Halo universe. We can’t wait to share more on what’s ahead.” Halo will be executive produced by Killen, Wyatt and Scott Pennington, along with Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank for Amblin Television. The series will be distributed globally by CBS Studios International.

The Halo TV show will start production in early 2019 and will be distributed around the world by CBS Studios International.
