Halo Season 2 Episode 5 Release Date & Remaining Schedule

Paramount+ confirmed the release date for Episode 5 of Halo Season 2 ahead of its incoming debut.

Based on the hit Xbox franchise, the Halo TV series is now halfway through its second season, telling the story of human supersoldier Master Chief and his place in the ongoing conflict between human UNSC forces and the alien covenant.

After a critically maligned first season, Halo‘s sophomore effort has fared much better. Under new showrunner David Wiener for Season 2, the series jumped a whopping 24% on Rotten Tomatoes between its first and second seasons (70% to 94%).

Halo Season 2 Locks In Episode 5 Release Date

Following the debut of Halo Season 2’s critically acclaimed Episode 4, the Paramount+ series confirmed the release date for Episode 5 as well as the remaining release schedule for the rest of the season.

Halo Season 2, Episode 5 (titled “Aleria”) will come to Paramount+ on Thursday, February 29.

The upcoming episode will be followed by three more chapters into the Halo Season 2 story, with the finale set to air on Thursday, March 2.

Specific release timing has not been given, but one can assume the rest of the series will follow the pattern typical for Paramount+ launches, with new Halo episodes hitting the service at 00:00 a.m. PT/3:00 a.m. ET on Thursday morning.

The full remaining release schedule for Halo Season 2 can be seen below:

  • Episode 5 – “Aleria:” Thursday, February 29
  • Episode 6 – “Onyx:” – Thursday, March 7
  • Episode 7 – “Thermopylae:” Thursday, March 14
  • Episode 8 – “Halo:” Thursday, March 2

Is Season 2 the End of the Halo TV Series?

Following the end of its oft-chided first season, the question remained if the Halo TV series would even be given the chance to redeem itself on Paramount+ came in to play.

Season 2 was eventually greenlit, leading to the on-screen adventures fans are currently enjoying.

However, no talk has been made public about the potential for a Season 3.

While Paramount has yet to give the green light (at least in a public fashion) to a third season of the Halo series, it certainly feels like Showrunner David Wiener is working under the assumption there will be more coming beyond its sophomore effort.

Even though Season 1 exists, and Season 2 is a continuation of that, this latest batch of episodes has almost acted like the beginning of this Halo story.

Episode 4 of Season 2 tackled the iconic events of the fall of Reach, a critical moment in Halo lore, and the inciting event that sends the franchise on the story shown off in the mainline Halo games.

While the Halo show has largely deviated from the story of its source material, it is starting to feel like it is setting up for Season 2 to end at the very beginning of the first Halo Xbox game.

Seeing as the series just presented its take on the fall of Reach (the battle that happens directly before the events of the first game), one can assume the rest of Season 2 will be setting up where the series will go next, with the finale (titled “Halo”) seeing Master Chief and the UNSC forces land on the series’ namesake, a Forerunner Halo ring.

This could be the perfect tease for where the series could go next, following Chief as he not only battles the Covenant on the Halo ring but also discovers a mysterious parasite known as the Flood that could eradicate all life in the galaxy.
