Perhaps after the lackluster Halo: Nightfall live-action series, which served to bridge the gap between Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, you thought that any further live-action Halo adaptations were on ice. Think again.
The long rumored live-action Halo television series with Steven Spielberg's name attached appears to be live and kicking according to statements obtained by TV Guide. When Showtime president and CEO David Nevins was questioned about the fate of the series, Nevins replied, "[It's] still in very active development," before mentioning that he had seen scripts for the show.
The statement of one person might be a bit flimsy to hang hopes on, but they also managed to corner the president of Showtime's programming, Gary Levine. "[The live-action Halo series] is absolutely still in development, still moving forward and I'm encouraged by what we've seen so far," Levine clarified, "It's still live action, and it will definitely satisfy the fans of Halo and I think also satisfy the drama audiences of Showtime."
No time frame was floated for when the series might materialize on Showtime, but given that the higher-ups at the company were able to confirm its development might indicate that release could be sooner than we might imagine.
