Quantum Leap: Ben Tackles Witch Trials, Nazis & Area 51 In Season 2 Trailer
Season 2 of Quantum Leap premieres on NBC Wednesday, October 4 at 8 p.m. ET.
Witch trials! Aliens! Punching Nazis! NBC's Quantum Leap has it all in the official trailer for Season 2 (officially premiering October 4 at 8 p.m. ET). Perfectly set to The Chamber Brothers' 1966 classic "Time Has Come Today," the teaser footage finds physicist Dr. Ben Song (Raymond Lee) hopping across a plethora of disparate time periods, including the future!
We also know that he'll be leaping into the body of a spy in Egypt (circa 1961; it's also worth noting that this episode was shot on location in Cairo), undertaking a UFO investigation in 1949, and going way back in the timeline to endure the Witch Trials in 1692 Massachusetts.
Thankfully, Dr. Song won't be alone on his upcoming adventures — he'll have plenty of support from his fellow QL team members like Herbert "Magic" Williams (Ernie Hudson), who seems to appear alongside Ben in one of the 1992 snippets. "I'd love to see Magic either Leap or be the hologram that helps him through it at some point," Hudson told SYFY WIRE last year. Will he finally get his chance?
