Halo Season 2 Begins Production In Iceland

After spending years in development, Master Chief finally made his way to television in Halo. Based on the best-selling video games, the series chronicles the 26th century war between the United Nations Space Command and the league of alien races known as the Covenant. Leading humanity’s cause is Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 (Pablo Schreiber), a super-soldier who commands the elite unit known as Silver Team.

Season 1 premiered this past March on Paramount+. One month before the premiere, the network renewed the series for a second season. Now, Paramount+ has confirmed the start of production on season 2 with a behind-the-scenes photo posted on the show’s official Twitter account. According to the caption, filming is getting underway in Iceland. You can check out the announcement below.
