Renewed: Halo.

Plus more 1883 episodes and another saga from the Yellowstone universe, 1932.

Amongst the announcements stateside this week by Paramount was a second season renewal for the upcoming Halo series.

David Wiener — who created Brave New World and was a co-executive producer on Fear the Walking Dead and Homecoming — is also officially joining the series as executive producer and showrunner.

The early renewal is a strong vote of confidence for the adaptation of Microsoft’s $6 billion-dollar blockbuster gaming franchise for the Xbox, which has been in the works as a series since 2014.

It premieres in Australia on March 24.

Meanwhile Yellowstone prequel series 1883 has seen additional episodes ordered at Paramount Plus.

Another Taylor Sheridan-created origin-story following the Dutton Family called 1932 will follow a new generation of Duttons “during the time of western expansion, Prohibition and the Great Depression.”

1883 stars Sam Elliott, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Billy Bob Thornton, Isabel May, LaMonica Garrett, Marc Rissmann, Audie Rick, Eric Nelsen and James Landry Hébert.

The show follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of western expansion and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana. It is executive produced by Sheridan, John Linson, Art Linson, David Glasser, Ron Burkle and Bob Yari.
