This season 2 had been confirmed at the beginning of 2022 even before the broadcast of the premiere, which was not particularly appreciated by fans… In recent days, it is the channel Youtube international platform that leaked the return date of the series, set for February 8, 2024. Unfortunately, the playlist allowing you to view all the already released episodes of Haloand who was at the origin of leakis blocked in our country… Obviously, we expected a first video to be broadcast fairly quickly and it happened as part of the CCXP23 (there Comic Con Experience from São Paulo) this Saturday.

The plot will plunge us into the middle of the conflict against the invader Covenant six months after the end of season 1, of which we see the many very threatening vessels. Action-packed scenes of desolation and confrontation are numerous, while a patriotic speech resonates in the background, the final message of which is well hammered out. We also briefly see an AI that is clearly not Cortana (Jen Taylor), also back, it remains to be seen if she is known to fans. And to end this overview, a Halo shows up.
Incidentally, this second season still produced by Showtime in association with Amblin Television And 343 Industries has for new showrunner David Wiener.
