However he additionally had the playing cards dealt to him from season 1 of like, ‘Right here’s the place you begin. You must play off this.’ However now, I really feel like, particularly with the introduction of the Flood now, season 3 goes to be epic if we get to do this. So yeah, I’m very hopeful.”

There’s a lot working in Halo‘s favor in the mean time, together with an lively leap into its subsequent section of storytelling, a extra warmly obtained second season with a 89% Contemporary rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and strong streaming numbers on Paramount+ to match. However the sequence, with its large units, heavy costumes, and impressive VFX, additionally isn’t low cost to make, with season 1 reportedly costing a whopping $200 million.
