Quantum Leap returns with the original Dr. Sam Beckett!

NBC has given the thumbs up to a pilot

Exciting news for fans of ’80s TV hit “Quantum Leap” today with NBC giving pilot orders to a new sequel series that will again likely star Scott Bakula as the now long-lost time-traveler Samuel Beckett.

Here’s the logline : It’s been 30 years since Dr. Sam Beckett 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.

67 year-old Bakula previously said talks were underway for a “Quantum Leap” revival. Earlier this year, Bakula appeared as a guest on Bob Saget’s Here For You podcast and revealed there was something happening.

“There are very significant conversations about it right now going on,” Bakula told the late comedian and actor. “I don’t know what it would be. I don’t know who would have it. The rights were a mess for years. I don’t know if they’re even sorted out now. That’s always been the biggest complication.”

Dean Stockwell won’t be back, since he sadly passed away in 2021, but it does sound like Beckett will make a surprise reappearance – at least at some stage.
