Paramount+ has confirmed that the helmet will be coming off for Pablo Schreiber‘s Master Chief in the upcoming Halo live-action series adaptation. In a recent interview with IGN, the show’s executive producer and 343 Industries’ studio head Kiki Wolfkill revealed that fans will indeed “see his face.”

“I think we set out to tell a character story and a personal story,” she remarked. “And once we really got into what that story was, it became clear that you really needed to see the person in the armor and under the helmet.” She added that the face reveal will be a massive moment for fans of the franchise, who have waited two decades for the moment (despite his short face reveal in the games).

“For some people, it’s been a moment 20 years in the making, and for other people, it is something that feels very hard to imagine,” Wolfkill added. “We absolutely respect both sides of that fence, those who really want to see Chief’s face and those who really don’t. But for the nature of this story, it felt really important to connect with the Master Chief in a different way, and that meant showing the face.”

Halo will premiere on March 24 over on Paramount+.

Elsewhere in entertainment, HBO says there’s “no guarantee” that more Game of Thrones spin-offs would be made.
