This brand new sci-fi packed sequel series to the 80's Classic stars Raymond Lee (Top Gun: Maverick).
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 unauthorised 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.
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.
- “NBC is banking on this Quantum Leap scratching the same tonal itch as its predecessor. So far, it’s doing the job in the only way it really ever could have.” – Steve Greene (indieWire)
- “It remains to be seen if it’ll manage to match the original, both for its timeless whimsy and thematic thoughtfulness, but oh boy, here’s hoping.” – Zaki Hasan (San Francisco Chronicle)
- “Lee makes for a solid lead, and oscillating between past and present does add a bit more dimension to the framework, which still boasts the procedural component of Ben helping a different person each week before leaping into a new setting.” – Brian Lowry (CNN.com)
