Quantum Leap: Official Trailer | NBC's Quantum Leap

Get ready to jump into a science-fiction adventure because Quantum Leap returns to NBC this fall. 

The highly-anticipated series is back, set 30 years after the events of NBC's original Quantum Leap, when Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) disappeared into the Quantum Leap experiment. The new series will follow a similar formula, this time featuring Dr. Ben Song (Raymond Lee) as our main character tasked with body-hopping throughout space and time. Each episode will be unique but will also explore the original Quantum Leap experiment and the mystery surrounding Dr. Beckett's whereabouts. 

Who Is In the New Quantum Leap Cast?

Fans of the original Quantum Leap are eager for the sci-fi classic's return, all eyes are on the new cast of scientists that will conduct this timey-whimey body-jumping experiment. Without further ado, let's check out the cast of the new Quantum Leap

Raymond Lee as Dr. Ben Song

Our main character of the new Quantum Leap is Dr. Ben Song, a highly-intelligent quantum physicist who jumps through time to explore the mysteries of the original Quantum Leap experiment. While Ben will have the help of the Quantum Leap team, it is up to Ben to finally put things in order after the chaotic events of the original experiment.

Ernie Hudson as Herbert "Magic" Williams

Every science fiction story needs an authoritarian figurehead, and for Quantum Leap, we have Herbert "Magic" Williams. Magic is the leader of the Quantum Leap project, torn between the responsibility of answering to his bosses in the Pentagon or taking care of the Quantum Leap team. 

Nanrisa Lee as Jenn Chou

Jenn Choi is the head of digital security for the Quantum Leap experiment and works closely with Magic. Jenn is focused on discovering why Ben decided to leap with the hope of eventually bringing Ben home.  

Mason Alexander Park as Ian Wright

Another central member of the Quantum Leap project is Ian Wright, the lead programmer who rebuilds "Ziggy", an AI unit that provides crucial information about Ben's leaps through time. Ziggy is often the comic relief in the original series, so fans are thrilled to learn that the supercomputer will return. 

Caitlin Bassett as Addison Augustine

Addison Augustine is an ex-Army intelligence officer who has an important role in the Quantum Leap project. Appearing as a hologram that only Ben can see and hear, Addison provides valuable insight into the past that Ben uses as a guide throughout his adventures. 

Quantum Leap premieres Monday September 19 at 10/9c on NBC. Watch Quantum Leap on NBC Mondays at 10/9c and the next day on Peacock.

To better prepare for the new Quantum Leap series, all five seasons of the original are available to watch right now on Peacock.
