Countless television productions stopped throughout 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but are finally starting to pick up as studios get their pandemic precautions figured out ahead of vaccine availability. Production on Showtime’s long-awaited Halo television show, which is shooting in Budapest, Hungary, is back underway, and the social team at game developer 343 Industries dropped a few set photos for us to pore over.
The photos on offer run the gamut from weapons to monsters to a recently-returned actor, along with a message from co-showrunner Kiki Wolfkill.
“As you may have seen on IG last month, after a herculean effort on Showtime’s part, we were able to go back to Budapest a few months ago and resume production on the Halo television series! While we were able to cover a lot of ground during the pandemic ‘hiatus’, the thing we couldn’t do while working from home was to actually shoot,” Wolfkill wrote. “So with a rigorous covid protocol in place and our fingers crossed, we picked up where we left off in March and were able to get some amazing footage in the can. Oh, and this time I got to pack Jen Taylor in my luggage to bring her Cortana magic to the show! What a gift to have her on our set and in Budapest with me. So much to share in 2021 but in the meantime, stay safe, Spartans and enjoy this tiny sneak peek!”
