Even without critics’ seal of approval, “Halo” is starting to get extremely interesting. Season 2 will feature the Fall of Reach, a massive battle around which a significant part of the franchise’s lore revolves. Thanks to the prequel game “Halo: Reach,” many fans have played the disastrous campaign themselves, so the show’s take on the arc may very well intrigue them.
The combination of a new showrunner, good reviews, hard-hitting action, and one of the franchise’s most pivotal battles looming on the horizon seems promising. What’s more, if Season 2 is successful enough to guarantee the series’ future, there are many other interesting events to explore — after all, since the season covers the battle against the Covenant on Reach, it should only be a matter of time before the Flood starts terrorizing the live-action show.
