Master Chief and the beloved buzz aren’t the only pieces of Halo lore packed in new Paramount+ ad. When the Paramount logo appears on screen, a Covenant ship flies across the screen as everything turns blue.
The Paramount+ ad was released shortly after the official Halo trailer, which gave fans their first in-depth look at the highly anticipated TV series. Arrival in March, Halo will act as one of Paramount+’s flagship TV shows going forward, alongside the Yellowstone Taylor Sheridan spin-off shows.
Halo will take place in what is called the Silver Timeline, which is separate from all events in the video games, allowing the series to have freedom with its story.
“Basically, we want to use the existing Halo lore, story, canon, and characters wherever they make sense for a linear narrative, but also separate the two distinctly so as not to invalidate the base canon or do unnatural things to force a video game first-person in an ensemble TV show,” Halo franchise creative director Frank O’Connor of the show’s Silver Timeline recently said. “The game’s canon and its extended lore in the novels , comics and other outlets are essential, original and will continue uninterrupted as long as we do Halo Games.”
