Pablo Schreiber, who plays Master Chief in the series, had this to say:
“It takes place very much in the universe that the video games created, but it's a TV show. We get to expand that universe and create stories in it. There's going to be some new characters that are introduced, there's going to be a lot of familiar characters that everyone will know from the game.”
The show was filmed in 2019, though COVID caused a delay in filing the final episode and reshoots. The show was filmed mostly in 2019, with reshoots seeing the show pushed into 2022. The series is split into six parts, though not many details are known beyond that.
From the trailer above, we can be sure at least that the Master Chief will feature, which I’m sure many fans will be happy to know.
