Paramount+ has witnessed a huge record of the Halo TV series. Up to now, the Halo TV series is supposed to be the greatest series to hit the streaming service, which is expressing so many things when it enters the preferences of Star Trek and the sequel show to iCarly. The Halo series is adapted from one of the largest gaming franchises; furthermore, this is the first time this game is brought to life. This show, which is produced by Steven Spielberg, has been in the works since 2013, and fortunately, it has been almost successful. The Halo series has got many positive reviews from critics and it is well-welcomed by fans following the debut episode.
Paramount has announced that the Halo series set a big record for its debut and became the series with the highest viewers on Paramount+ within 24 hours; however, viewership numbers have not been shown. Halo has displaced Yellowstone spin-off, 1883, as the prior holder of this record. It is the fact that the series is connected to such a huge IP, it’s difficult to say this comes as a big surprise; nevertheless, it shows a signal of a big win for the moderately new streaming service. Halo season 2 has been already greenlighted by Paramount; therefore, it appears that it will be a massive tentpole product that the streamer will continue to puff. Whether spin-offs or other products of Halo media will be coming to Paramount+ stays to be seen or not, but it’s an exceptionally vast universe with many distinct characters and stories to discover. You can check out a statement of Tanya Giles, Chief Programming Officer at Paramount about the series’ success, below.
“Bringing Halo to life as a streaming series has been one of the most rewarding efforts for Paramount+ to date and we could not be more thrilled at the massive fan response to the series’ debut. Along with our phenomenal partners at Showtime, 343 Industries and Amblin Television, we cannot wait for fans to experience more of this incredible universe.”
The Halo series strives to take the well-noted franchise in new directions when keeping strained and true features in place. The premiere already witnessed Master Chief take off his helmet to show his face, something the games have always avoided. These courageous changes will probably allow for new stories with Master Chief and open up the Halo universe in absolutely new ways.
