Quantum Leap (1989–1993)

Quantum Leap is an American science fiction television series aired on NBC. Developed by Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt, it is a revival of the 1989 show created by Donald P. Bellisario. Bellisario, Lilien and Wynbrandt executive produce. It takes place in 2022: 30 years after the season five finale where the show left off. The series stars Raymond Lee as the new lead character Dr. Ben Song, along with Caitlin Bassett, Mason Alexander Park, Nanrisa Lee, and Ernie Hudson. Quantum Leap premiered on September 19, 2022. In December 2022, the series was renewed for a second season consisting of 13 episodes, which premiered on October 4, 2023.

In April 2024, NBC canceled the series after two seasons.

Premise

Thirty years have passed since Dr. Sam Beckett vanished into the Quantum Leap accelerator. The Quantum Leap project has been restarted with a new team trying to piece together the mysteries behind Beckett and his machine. For reasons unknown, Dr. Ben Song, the new project's lead physicist, has uploaded new program code to the project systems and used the upgraded accelerator to leap back in time. He becomes lost in the past just as Beckett did, living the lives of other people and changing history in hopes of getting back to the present. Project employee Addison Augustine, who is Ben's fiancée, acts as his liaison with the project, appearing to him as a hologram that only he can see and hear, just as the previous project's observer Al Calavicci did for Beckett.

Ben leaps into Danny "Youngblood" Hill, a prizefighter in 1977, the day before his bout for the world middleweight championship. Addison informs him that Danny originally lost the fight because he was distracted and they assume it's due to Danny's girlfriend Angela, who is attached to Danny's opponent. They soon learn, however, that Danny's distraction is his trainer and older brother, Darryl, a Vietnam veteran suffering from PTSD who committed suicide following Danny's loss. Ben makes Darryl promise to seek help and then, with coaching from Darryl and Addison, wins the fight. Addison informs Ben that his leaps are likely to continue for some time as Ian discovered that Ben's code is taking him on a path towards the mystery point in spacetime. Ben tells Addison that he had a memory when he got knocked down during the fight but leaps before he can say more. In 2022, Addison is suffering from exhaustion due to her singular focus on getting Ben home. After she collapses in the imaging chamber, Magic forces her to slow down and, following Ben's leap, Magic, Ian and Jenn join Addison at her home to help her unwind and relax. While there, Magic receives a call from Beth, who informs him that Janis contacted her and stole artifacts from the original project that Al had in his possession.

Ben lands in Salvation, an Old West town on the verge of destruction by a railroad company, in the body of aged ex-gunslinger Diego de la Cruz, who was summoned by his granddaughter to help save the town from a dangerous outlaw gang hired by the railroad to drive the townsfolk away. Ben, a pacifist, tries to overcome his moral qualms when Addison informs him that he'll have to beat the outlaw leader, Josiah McDonough, in order to leap. Ben rallies the townsfolk to rig a series of traps for McDonough and his gang so they can collect a large bounty to save the town and then informs them of a large vein of copper nearby that will keep them financially stable for years to come. Before Ben leaps, however, he and Addison are surprised to encounter a man in the town who knows Ben's name and that he is a time traveler, warning Ben to stop following him. Meanwhile, in 2022, the PQL team receives a surprise visit from Congresswoman Kavita Adani, who sits on the project's oversight committee, and tries to keep her from figuring out that Ben made an unauthorized leap. She does, anyway, but Magic convinces her to keep the project running by promising to find a way to save her brother who had died in a car accident in a vehicle that she was driving.

When Daisy's aunt is found dead in her room, her family debates whether Daisy murdered her or if the demon did it. Her aunt's will names Daisy to inherit all her money and possessions, which they suspect to be a motive. Ben later discovers that Daisy's symptoms are consistent with being exposed to certain poisons and figures out that Daisy's mother and uncle murdered her aunt, and have been poisoning Daisy. Daisy's mother was unhappy with her husband and has been having an affair with her brother in law. After Daisy died, her uncle would be next in line to inherit her aunt's money, which Daisy's mother and uncle were going to use to start a new life together. Daisy's mother and uncle are arrested.

Augustine is sent to his quarters when he objects. By working with Augustine, Ben convinces the crew to mutiny and prevent the Montana from firing on the Han, instead getting the codes to remotely detonate the mines and clear a path to the Tampa.

Production

Development

In September 2021, Scott Bakula, who played main character Sam Beckett in the series, hinted that a reboot of the show was being considered, with creator Donald P. Bellisario returning in some capacity. A pilot episode was ordered by NBC the following January with plans for writers Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt to act as showrunners with executive producer Martin Gero and with original producer and writer Deborah Pratt. Helen Shaver was hired to direct the pilot episode and to serve as an executive producer as well. NBC ordered the revival with a full season pickup in May after viewing the test pilot.

After it received a full season order, Aadrita Mukerji and Dean Georgaris joined as additional executive producers, and Gero took over as showrunner while Lilien and Wynbrandt stayed with the series as executive producers. A new pilot was directed by Thor Freudenthal and written by Lilien and Wynbrandt, with the original pilot being scheduled to air later in the season. The decision not to launch the revival with the original premiere episode of the season was made in order to provide a better introduction in the series, and it was rescheduled as the sixth episode with some reshoots added for context.

In September 2022, Bakula confirmed that he had been asked by producers to reprise his role as Sam Beckett in the revival but had ultimately decided to not be involved with the new series, saying in a statement on Instagram, "As the show has always been near and dear to my heart, it was a very difficult decision to pass on the project".

After the first three episodes had aired, NBC ordered six additional episodes for the first season, bringing its total to 18 episodes. On December 12, 2022, NBC renewed the series for a second season consisting of 13 episodes, which premiered on October 4, 2023. The first 8 episodes of the second season went into production immediately after the first season wrapped, with no break in between because of the impending strikes. The final 5 episodes of the second season began filming on November 27, 2023, once the strikes had ended and there was time for pre-production. On April 5, 2024, NBC canceled the series after two seasons.

Casting

Raymond Lee was the first actor cast in the show, taking the lead role as Dr. Ben Song in March 2022. Shortly afterwards, the cast was filled out with Ernie Hudson, Nanrisa Lee, Mason Alexander Park, and Caitlin Bassett, making her television debut. After being ordered to series, Georgina Reilly joined the cast in a recurring role. In Season 2, two new series regulars were added: Eliza Taylor (The 100) and Peter Gadiot (Yellowjackets).

Marketing and release

Quantum Leap premiered on September 19, 2022. The show is available to stream on Peacock, the NBC website, the NBC app, and via On-Demand on Comcast/Xfinity Systems for free with ads.

Reception

Critical response

The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 57% approval rating for Season 1 with an average rating of 5.2/10, based on 23 critic reviews. The website's critics consensus reads, "This more serialized reboot of Quantum Leap has enough heart to merit a look from viewers with the luxury of time, but it often forgets to have fun with the episodic structure that made the original a classic." On Metacritic, the series has a weighted average score of 57 out of 100 based on nine critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".
