HALO: SEASON ONE takes place in the universe that first came to be in 2001 through the launch
of Xbox’s first “Halo” videogame. After years of human civil war and growing political unrest,
mankind’s very future is threatened when our outermost colonies intrude upon the sacred worlds
of an alien threat known as the Covenant. As this fanatical powerful alliance destroys world after
human world, only one soldier slows their advance – a cybernetically enhanced “Spartan”
supersoldier, the Master Chief (Pablo Schreiber, “American Gods” and “Orange is the New
Black”). As the mystery of the Covenant’s true ambitions are revealed, the Master Chief must find
a way to save humanity from the alien threat while also coming to terms with the secrets of his
own enigmatic past.

The series stars Schreiber as the Master Chief or Spartan-117; Natascha McElhone
(“Californication”) as Dr. Halsey, the brilliant, conflicted and inscrutable creator of the Spartan
super soldiers; and Jen Taylor (“Halo” game series, RWBY) as Cortana, the most advanced AI in
human history and potentially the key to the survival of the human race. Additional stars include
Bokeem Woodbine (“Fargo”), Shabana Azmi (Fire), Natasha Culzac (“The Witcher”), Olive Gray
(“Half Moon Investigations”), Yerin Ha (“Reef Break”), Bentley Kalu (Avengers: Age of Ultron),
Kate Kennedy (“Catastrophe”), Charlie Murphy (“Peaky Blinders”) and Danny Sapani (“Penny
