After a trailer for the Halo TV show at the Game Awards, the show’s executive producer reveals that it will have a separate canon.
The end of 2021 has been an exciting time for Halo fans, because several important events have occurred regarding the franchise. Recently, Infinite halo launched, allowing players to play as Master Chief in a new campaign for the first time since Halo 5 in 2015. However, news about the series has gone beyond the game as recently more information about the Halo The TV show has been unveiled.
Revealed in 2013 by legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg, the Halo TV series have been in the works for some time. However, many difficulties led to several delays in the show. While it could sometimes seem like the series was never going to see the light of day, a recent trailer at the Game Awards seems to suggest that fans are finally going to see the Master Chief in a live-action format in 2022. After that debut glimpse into the story, players have now learned even more details about the upcoming series, including what sets it apart from the games.
In a recent video posted to Twitter by Halopedia, fans learned more about the upcoming Halo TV show. In the short clip, executive producer Kiki Wolfill discussed the canon of the upcoming series. Specifically, she revealed that the canon of the TV show will be different from other mediums in the franchise, such as games and books. According to the executive producer, this decision was taken to help the two guns in the future. By separating the stories, she hoped it would give writers on both sides the creative freedom to create the best possible stories.
As well as revealing that the TV series will have a different canon, it also revealed the name of this separate timeline. According to Wolfkill, the new canon in the series was called Halo Silver Timeline. This new name has been added to help differentiate it from the base canon found in the franchise. This meant that the events observed in Infinite halo would not necessarily impact those found in the Halo TV shows.
While this news of a new timeline may disappoint some fans, it does make sense that the company is creating a separate canon for the TV series. Following the release of Halo: combat has evolved, the base canon of the franchise has been filled with numerous games, books, and audio series over the past 20 years. By introducing the Halo Silver timeline for the TV show, creators can follow their own narrative path.
It will be interesting to see what this new gun for the Halo The TV series looks like when it finally comes out. Luckily for fans, the show is slated for release sometime in 2022 on Paramount Plus, which means the long wait is almost over.
