Halo is more than Star Trek

Paramount + relies on sci-fi, gets Halo and new Star Trek series

The trend towards "plus" in the television business continues: More and more broadcasters or studios are starting streaming offshoots based on the model of Netflix or, more precisely, Disney +. This also includes Paramount + and the portal uses, among other things. on well-known science fiction brands. The fragmentation of the TV and streaming business is anything but new, but it is still going on. Because more and more new providers are pouring into the lucrative market or are hoping for good online business as streamer. In the case of Paramount +, however, this is not a real restart, but rather a rebranding. Essentially, what was previously known as CBS All Access is used here and given a new name and additional content.

The start-up had been known for a long time, but Paramount + and the parent company ViacomCBS have now also announced the starting line-up for the launch on March 4th. As Polygon writes, there is not necessarily "tons" of new content that day. But if you look to the future and do so in two respects, then you can look forward to quite or hopefully interesting productions.

Halo: the series

Above all, this includes the Halo series, which has felt like an eternity. This was last intended for the cable broadcaster Showtime, but is now shown via the streaming portal. As Deadline reports, said David Nevins, chief creative officer of CBS and chairman and CEO of Showtime Networks, "It (the Halo series) delivers the instinctive excitement of the game, along with a much deeper emotional experience of the Spartans, that is People whose humanity has been chemically and genetically altered. "


Halo is in the middle of production and is currently being shot in Hungary, around 60 percent of the first season should already be finished. The series does not yet have a specific date and in view of Corona new postponements must be expected, but the Halo series is currently planned for the first quarter of 2022.

Star Trek without end

The second mainstay of Sci-Fi is Star Trek. Because at least two more are to be added to the existing series (Discovery, Picard and Lower Decks): Star Trek: Prodigy, an animation series intended for children and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. The latter was announced almost a year ago and is supposed to tell of the early Enterprise adventures of Captain Pike and Mister Spock.

The latter in particular is eagerly awaited and the makers promise classic Star Trek material - which is to be expected in view of the "scene" or spaceship. Not too much is known about Strange New Worlds, but the leading roles will be played by Anson Mount (Captain Christopher Pike), Ethan Peck (Science Officer Spock) and Rebecca Romijn (Lieutenant Commander Una).
