Warning: the below contains spoilers for the entirety of Halo season 2


The second season of Halo is now available to stream on Paramount Plus in its entirety, with the shocking and jam-packed finale having now been released.

The finale was aptly titled Halo, and saw John, Perez and the Silver Team facing off against a powerful adversary, as the Covenant attacked.

However, with plenty still to be explored in future seasons, what is the likelihood we will get to see more episodes? Has the series been renewed yet, and when would the new episodes be released?

Read on for everything you need to know about Halo season 3.

It hasn't been officially confirmed yet whether Halo will be returning for a third season, but the show has reportedly seen strong viewing figures, and it certainly seems that, if the interest is there, the team intend to make more.

Executive producer Justin Falvey told The Hollywood Reporter back in 2022 that the intention was for the team to be making the show "for some time", exploring the wider universe throughout multiple seasons.

Meanwhile, showrunner David Wiener told Collider this year: "I think if you're true to the story, you wanna leave yourself with doors to walk through at the end. We have a lot. It's such a huge world.

"There's so much of the legacy, of the lore, but also, every solution brings about its own problems at the end of the season, and I think that it's a great springboard. I hope we get the chance to make more. That's totally the intention. You do think about it. I would be lying if I said we didn't."

Executive producer Kiki Wolfkill added: "You always have to assume the best, right? And you wanna be writing with that long-term view in mind. So, definitely there’s story beyond season 2 we would love to be able to explore."

When would a potential Halo season 3 be released?

It's hard to say exactly when Halo would be back on Paramount Plus for its third season, but given the show's history it's likely to be a fairly long wait.

The show was renewed for its second season before its first even debuted, yet it still took around two years for season 2 to be released. Season 3 hasn't even been confirmed yet.

We would therefore suggest that, were the series to be renewed, we might not see the new episodes until early 2026. However, this could of course change, and we will keep this page updated once any news arrives.

Halo cast - Who would return for a possible season 3?

Were Halo to return for a third season, we'd certainly expect Pablo Schreiber to be back as Master Chief John-117. Meanwhile, the likes of Jen Taylor, Natascha McElhone and Shabana Azmi are all also likely to be back.

In truth, any of the cast from season 2 could return, even those who met their end in this most recent run. It was thought after season 2 that Charlie Murphy wouldn't be back, after her character Makee appeared to perish. However, that turned out not to be the case, with Murphy making a surprise reappearance in the first episode of season 2.

The same could theoretically be true for Kate Kennedy as Kai-125 and Fiona O'Shaughnessy as Laera, both of whom appeared to die in the Halo season 2 finale.

Here's the cast for Halo season 2, many of whom would be expected to return for season 3:

  • Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief, Spartan John-117
  • Natascha McElhone as Dr Halsey
  • Jen Taylor as Cortana
  • Charlie Murphy as Makee
  • Danny Sapani as Captain Jacob Keyes
  • Olive Gray as Dr Miranda Keyes
  • Bokeem Woodbine as Soren-066
  • Shabana Azmi as Admiral Margaret Parangosky
  • Natasha Culzac as Riz-028
  • Yerin Ha as Kwan Ha
  • Bentley Kalu as Vannak-134
  • Tylan Bailey as Kessler
  • Joseph Morgan as James Ackerman
  • Cristina Rodlo as Talia Perez
  • Christina Bennington as Cortana
