It is produced by Amblin Television, 343 Industries, Showtime Networks, One Big Picture, and Chapter Eleven, and follows a 26th-century war between the United Nations Space Command and the Covenant, a theocratic-military alliance of several advanced alien races.

Development for a Halo television series began in 2013. Killen was hired in June 2018, with the series officially announced with a 9-episode order for Paramount+. Filming began in Ontario, Canada in October 2019, although post-production for the first five episodes were affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Filming eventually resumed in Budapest, Hungary in February 2021.
Halo is set to premiere on March 24, 2022, on Paramount+. The series was renewed for a second season, ahead of its series premiere. A portion of the series showed at SXSW on March 14, 2022.
