Official Halo Watch Parties Coming to Twitter This Week
The first episode of Halo is now available to stream on Paramount+, and fans that want to participate in discussions regarding the series will have the opportunity to do so thanks to a series of watch parties set to take place over the next few weeks! The watch parties are part of a partnership between Paramount and Twitter, and it's all set to begin on Friday, March 25th! Things will begin with a virtual roundtable between Olive Gray (Miranda Keyes), Kate Kennedy (Kai-125), and executive producer Kiki Wolfkill. In addition to discussing the show, viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at the premiere.
While the first watch party is meant to be a pre-show, the rest of the schedule will focus on after show watch parties. These live streams will cover each corresponding episode, and viewers can expect fan segments, celebrity guests, and more. While the streaming era allows people to watch at their own pace, the idea of these parties is to give fans an incentive to watch by a certain point so that they can come to discuss the series with other fans, as well as those involved with the show's development. The full watch party schedule can be found below:
