How to Watch

Watch Quantum Leap Wednesday, October 4 at 8/7c NBC and next day on Peacock

The original series followed the adventures and travels of Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) as he time-traveled to different eras and dimensions — forced to body-hop around the universe after a botched experiment. Every episode is unique, with our main character jumping into a new body and a brand new set of obstacles to leap through each week.

The new Quantum Leap follows a similar premise. This time, it's focusing on a new character, Dr. Ben Song (played by Raymond Lee). The series is set 30 years after the iconic Dr. Sam Beckett disappeared into the Quantum Leap accelerator, with our main man Ben exploring the mysteries of the original experiment and the still-missing Dr. Sam Beckett. Quantum Leap also stars Caitlin Bassett, Nanrisa LeeErnie Hudson, and Mason Alexander Park.

"I remember distinctly in sixth grade, it was my best friend's favorite show, and I thought he was such an adult watching something like Quantum Leap," Lee told EW about how he discovered the original Quantum Leap. "By watching with my friend, I became a fan."

When Will Quantum Leap Season 2 Premiere?

NBC has announced the second season of the hit series Quantum Leap will debut on October 4, moving the show to Wednesday nights. Quantum Leap Season 2 already previewed its new season at San Diego Comic-Con back in July, and will join a roster of new and returning NBC shows that includes The IrrationalFoundMagnum P.I. and, of course, the Law & Order and Chicago universes.

Over the course of an 18-episode first season packed with guest stars and memorable locations and adventures, the new Quantum Leap paid lots of homage to the original show, while also breaking new ground. Leaping got a few new twists, bending the rules established by the first series, and Ben made some exciting discoveries that are still playing out in the larger Quantum Leap narrative. It all wrapped up with the Season 1 finale in April of 2023, but don't worry. More Quantum Leap is on the way soon.
