Paramount+ has announced that Halo has officially begun production in Iceland on season 2 and both Joseph Morgan (The Originals) and Cristina Rodlo (No One Gets Out of Here Alive) are joining the fray!
Based on the popular franchise that began in 2001 with the launch of Xbox’s first Halo game, the series dramatizes a 26th-century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant. Morgan is set to play James Ackerson, a formidable intelligence operative who has spent his career climbing the ranks of the UNSC’s secretive Office of Naval Intelligence. Rodlo plays Talia Perez, a corporal specializing in linguistics for a UNSC Marine Corp communications unit and a relatively new recruit who has yet to see any real combat.
Halo stars Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief, Spartan-117, and Natascha McElhone as Dr. Halsey, both of whom also serve as producers this season. Additional returning cast members include Jen Taylor as Cortana, Bokeem Woodbine, Shabana Azmi, Natasha Culzac, Olive Gray, Yerin Ha, Bentley Kalu, Kate Kennedy, Charlie Murphy, and Danny Sapani. Fiona O’Shaughnessy (Laera) and Tylan Bailey (Kessler) return as series regulars for season 2.
