The franchise has also spread to other media, including comics and animation.
The primordial+ Halo The series debuted earlier this year and features many different characters and organizations from the games, though the plot is, overall, quite different. The ratings for the first season, which ran for nine episodes, were strong and Halo earned the second-biggest opening for a Paramount+ original series behind Yellowstone prequel1883. The first, however, actually beat 1883. It is therefore not surprising that Halo has been renewed for a second season.

Paramount also still intends to turn the series into a bigger franchise.
