“Halo ss 2”: release date, announcement
No sooner had the 1st season of the TV series “Halo” appeared to the viewer in full, as its creators announced the season 2. According to preliminary data, the spring of 2023 will be marked by the release of the continuation of the picture. The project is based on a series of games of the same name that remain popular to this day. The plot of the games and the TV series share the same concept, but go in different directions – the filmed version is different from what gamers know about the world of “Halo”.
Kwan Ha was having fun with her friends when unknown mutants began to land near her home. Trying to understand what was the matter, the guys showed interest, but were immediately killed. The miraculously surviving Kwan Ha ran to where the rest of the people lived. More than anything, she wanted to save her father, who was the leader of this territory.
When the Spartans appeared, the mutants had already killed half the population, but the situation did not improve. Finishing off the rest, the monsters destroyed their father in front of Kwan Ha. The Spartan who arrived in time attacked the enemy and saved the life of the girl. Since this Spartan killed Kwan Ha’s mother many years ago, he received no thanks.
Soon the girl woke up in the cabin, where Dr. Miranda Keyes appeared. She asked Kwan Ha to write down an appeal to the rest of the citizens whose planets could be attacked by these creatures. Referring to the fact that the Spartans were trying to save the people of Kwan Ha, Miranda longed to get at least some help from the girl. She refuses and wants to get out of here as soon as possible.
On a new planet, a Spartan touches an ancient artifact and remembers many things from a past life. He dreams of a family and later learns from Kwan Ha that years ago he made huge mistakes, killed and was an enemy to thousands of people. Fulfilling the orders of the leadership, the Spartan is forced to destroy the current captive. Instead, he does everything he can to save her.
At this time Dr. Catherine Halsey is getting ready to show the world her innovation. The SPARTAN-II project is able to create a physically enhanced version of a person – they will protect humanity from Covenant attacks. Halsey has many supporters, but there are also those who are not interested in the implementation of her project.
Halo is a ring world, an ancient artifact that has magical powers. It is it that can help stop a protracted war, save Kwan Ha, restore the memory of a Spartan, and do many more important things. But who will be able to use its power correctly?..

- The idea for a TV series came about after another “Halo” game sold again in a record number of copies. If in 2007 the first game sold 14 million copies, then 14 years later the number increased to 81 million.
- The script was written by longtime comrades Steven Kane (“NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service“, “Alias”, “Without a Trace”) and Kyle Killen (“Awake”). Steven Kane is a talented specialist in the field of detective genres, and Kyle Killen is well versed in fantasy.
- The TV show “Halo” had a very difficult path from the idea to the premiere of the season 1. It was originally planned that the audience will see the adaptation of the popular game back in 2015, and the project will be produced by Steven Spielberg. But everything went wrong. As a result, the producer was changed, and the premiere of the TV series was postponed to 2019. Rupert Wyatt was attached to direct, and he was also to serve as the new producer. But here, too, things did not go according to plan. The work was postponed for a year. As a result, Otto Bathurst was appointed to these positions and the premiere of “Halo” finally took place in 2022.
