Quantum Leap’s first season now contains 18 episodes after NBC ordered six more episodes
NBC has scheduled six more episodes of the revival of “Quantum Leap.” 18 episodes have been added to the initial 12 episodes, making Season 1’s total 18 episodes.
Even though Quantum Leap has been out of the screen for over thirty years, there are still numerous unresolved storyline threads from the beloved science fiction television series that has fans mystified. It appears, though, that some of those troublesome issues may be addressed in the upcoming NBC revival of the show, which started airing on Mondays at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 p.m. Ct.
A physicist named Dr. Sam Beckett, played by actor Scott Bakula, leaps through space-time in the 1989 film Quantum Leap to undo historical mistakes. The Herbert “Magic” Williams character, portrayed by Ernie Hudson, is at the core of one of the original series’ greatest loose threads.
Sam quantum-hops into Magic’s body in an original series episode from Season 3. The original series did not address the question of whether Magic remembered this, out-of-body event.
Even though Bakula recently stated on Twitter that he is not currently involved with the relaunch, the showrunner Martin Gero claims that a potential Bakula appearance is not out of the question and that the extended episodes create opportunities for many such scenarios.
The show “Quantum Leap” is likely the one that receives a modern remake, and the latest incarnation “works as a type of Swiss army tactical, and each episode can bounce in pretty much any direction,” according to the review.
The network claims that the most recent statistics indicate that it is the top-rated new series in the 18-49 age group.
According to NBC, Quantum Leap ranks among the Top 5 titles on Peacock season to date throughout all genres and is the network’s Top Current Season Series on the cable network Peacock channel.
