NBC Gives Series Order to 'Quantum Leap' Sequel Starring Raymond Lee

NBC has today given a series order to the original drama series Quantum Leap - a sequel series to the drama that aired on NBC from 1989-93. The drama is expected to appear on the broadcast network's Fall 2022 lineup.

It's been 30 years since Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula in the original series) stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished. Now, a new team has been assembled to restart the project in the hopes of understanding the mysteries behind the machine and the man who created it.

The drama stars Raymond Lee, Caitlin Bassett, Mason Alexander Park, Nanrisa Lee and Ernie Hudson.

Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt wrote the pilot, which was directed by Helen Shaver. They will executive produce with Martin Gero, Don Bellisario and Deborah Pratt. Universal Television, I Have an Idea! Entertainment, Belisarius Productions and Quinn's House Productions will produce.
