​Halo TV Series Tells New Story But Still Stars Iconic Master Chief

​Halo TV Series Tells New Story But Still Stars Iconic Master Chief

The forthcoming Halo TV series will explore a brand-new story but still boast a few familiar faces (or not) as stars of the show.

This news was revealed to IGN by Gary Levine, the President of Programming over at the television network.

The one and only Master Chief will be "a lead character" in the series, but the story will not become a re-telling of any of the classic Sci-Fi games.

During Showtime's panel at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, Levine said: "It is a new story but we are being incredibly respectful of the canon and working with the Microsoft 343 people to be sure we don't violate any of that."

Fans are eager to discover whether the Halo TV show's setting will differ to any of the games, but what about the smaller, more crucial details?

Have you ever seen Master Chief without his iconic helmet? No - nobody has - so how will the producers work around having a protagonist whose face is never, or has never, been shown?

"[It] is a key question and an important part of our series, is all I'll say," explained Levine. Does that mean they'll stick to traditions, or have a big reveal? I guess we'll just have to wait to find out.

Said wait should only be until 2020. However, due to the series becoming an "enormous undertaking" and Showtime's "most ambitious series ever," let's hope this predicted deadline isn't too ambitious.

Scripts have only just been completed and production is yet to begin, but the story developed by writer Kyle Killen, creator of Awake, explore a "brilliant, expansive world."

"It is a very different genre, it's futuristic, space-based science-fiction, it's not fantasy," Showtime President and CEO David Nevins added.

"It took us a long time to get the script but we felt like we had something that was really interesting and felt like it belonged on Showtime in terms of its character depth, and it's gonna be a big show."

Are you excited for the programme? Or should the Halo universe be left for video games only? Let us know.
