Halo has finally ended after nine weeks of great action scenes, AI friends, and fighting the Covenant. The first season of the stand-alone Paramount+ show based on the same-named video game franchise is now over. And after that ending, we really don’t know where this show is going.
We know you want to know what will happen to Master Chief, and we have answers. Here is what we know so far about when Halo Season 2 will start.

When Will Halo Season 2 Premiere?
Halo is one of Paramount Plus’s most ambitious projects, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that the science fiction show will be back for a second season. During a presentation in February 2022, ViacomCBS gave the show another season (Via: Deadline). Season 2 was announced before Season 1 even started, so it’s clear that the network believes in Halo’s live-action adaptation.
Paramount also announced that Steven Kane would leave the show after the first season. David Weiner, who has worked on Brave New World before, will be in charge of the next season of the show.

Several movies based on video games have been canceled in the past because they didn’t live up to what fans wanted. So, the fact that Halo will be back for a second season is great news for the community. But there’s no official date yet for when season 2 will be out. Since the news came out earlier this year, we can only assume that the second season is already being made. So, if everything goes well, we might be able to watch Halo again in 2023.
Halo Season 1 Storyline:
John, Cortana (Jen Taylor), Miranda (Olive Gray), and Parangosky (Shabana Azmi) get together to talk about strategy. They try to find the planet where the Covenant lives, and John says that Silver Team can get there. John has Parangosky’s support, but he is told to put his own feelings aside. Keyes says he’s sorry to John for helping Halsey with her experiments, but John says he’ll get even in the future. After Halsey’s pod crashes, some UNSC Marines hold someone they think is Halsey. Silver Team gets on the Forward Unto Dawn.
On the way to the Covenant base, Cortana tells them the truth about Halsey’s plan to completely take over John’s body. She tells John that she went against orders to save his humanity. After a rough trip, Silver Team gets to the base of the Covenant.
Back at Reach, Miranda tells her mother that Halsey is going to be killed by the court. During the execution, Miranda finds out that her mother put a clone in her place and that the clone is still free to roam.
Chief and his team fight Grunts from the Covenant. On the way to the artifact, they pick up needlers and other weapons from the Covenant. During the ritual of the Covenant, Makee and John meet up at the Halo. This lets the Covenant forces know about Silver Team. A group of Elites shows up to fight off the Spartans in a battle that feels like brutal fighting in the games. Silver Team has trouble keeping up, and John can’t beat the Covenant forces. By touching the keystone, Makee is able to stop a fatal blow. This sends her and John back to the Halo. Make falls down after Kai shoots her while she is trying to get John to help her turn on the Halo. Now that Maker is dead, the starmap to the first Halo is still not finished.
Now, the Chief has to decide whether to save the artifact or his team members, who are fighting for their lives. He gives up control to Cortana, who will do both things. Master Chief, but not John, come back stronger and with a perfect kill streak. With the help of Cortana controlling the Forward from afar, he easily wipes out all of the Covenant troops. He takes the item without saying a word.
Halsey thinks about “unguided evolution” and humanity’s “true potential” on the edge of Reach, where the UNSC can’t see her. She thinks, “I think the Halo will be the key.”
Master Chief heads back to the planet Reach. But when Kai sees that Chief is silent, seems emotionless, and once again has no face, he asks what viewers may also be thinking: “John, is that you?”
