“Quantum Leap” was a groundbreaking sci-fi show that aired from 1989 to 1993. Now 30 years later, the show is being revived with a new scientist who will be leaping around in time. But remember, Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) is still out there, leaping around in time and helping people, so fans of the original series are undoubtedly hoping that the two leapers will cross paths at some point.

The NBC description of the revival reads:

It’s been nearly 30 years since Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished. Now, a new team, led by physicist Ben Song (Raymond Lee), has been assembled to restart the project in hope of understanding the mysteries behind the machine and the man who created it.

Everything changes, however, when Ben makes an unauthorized leap into the past, leaving the team behind to solve the mystery of why he did it. At Ben’s side throughout his leaps is Addison (Caitlin Bassett), who appears in the form of a hologram only Ben can see and hear. She’s a decorated Army veteran who brings level-headed precision to her job.

At the helm of the highly confidential operation is Herbert “Magic” Williams (Ernie Hudson), a no-nonsense career military man who has to answer to his bosses who won’t be happy once they learn about the breach of protocol. The rest of the team at headquarters includes Ian Wright (Mason Alexander Park), who runs the Artificial Intelligence unit “Ziggy,” and Jenn Chou (Nanrisa Lee), who heads up digital security for the project.

As Ben leaps from life to life, putting right what once went wrong, it becomes clear that he and the team are on a thrilling journey. However, Addison, Magic, Ian and Jenn know that if they are going to solve the mystery of Ben’s leaps and bring him home, they must act fast or lose him forever.

Sadly, Bakula’s co-star Dean Stockwell, who played Al the hologram, died in November 2021 at the age of 85, so he unfortunately will not be appearing in the new series. But fingers crossed that we see some other familiar faces from the original show, which earned six Emmy Awards and two Golden Globes during its original run.

The premiere episode of the revival is titled “July 13, 1985” and its description reads, “A new team assembles to restart the Quantum Leap project; lead physicist Ben Song takes an unauthorized leap into 1985 as the team scrambles to figure out what happened and how to get him back.”

Then on September 26 comes episode two, titled “Atlantis.” Its description reads, “Ben finds himself headed into orbit aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis in 1995; Addison confides to Ian about a discovery and finds herself at odds with Magic and Jenn.”

“Quantum Leap” premieres Monday, September 19 at 10 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times on NBC.
