Should Paramount+’s Halo television series be picked up for a second season, it’ll be with a different hand guiding it. Both showrunners for the game adaptation’s first season are stepping away once Halo Season 1 production completes, Variety reports.
The Halo television series has been through the wringer. The show was announced in 2013 alongside the Xbox One with Stephen Spielberg attached as a producer. After years in development hell and changes behind the scenes, the show was finally under production just in time for the COVID-19 pandemic to halt television and movie production all over the world.
Production on season 1 is currently back underway. This latest incarnation of the show had two showrunners attached–Kyle Killen and Stephen Kane. Killen left the product before production officially began as he was “unable to render full-time showrunner duties during the show’s shoot in Budapest,” Variety says.
