NBC’s Quantum Leap season 2 is scheduled to debut on October 4 at 8 PM and once again pushing the boundaries of the show’s formula.
Returning to the series are Raymond Lee as Dr. Ben Song, Ernie Hudson as Herbert ‘Magic’ Williams, Caitlin Bassett as Addison Augustine, Mason Alexander Park as Ian Wright, and Nanrisa Lee as Jenn Chu. Joining this ensemble are several new cast members, adding fresh dynamics and intrigue to the series. Among the newcomers are Melissa Roxburgh, Francois Aranud, Aaron Abrams, P.J. Byrne, Eliza Taylor, and Peter Gadiot.
The show’s plot takes a notable shift in the upcoming season. While the original series was known for its time-traveling adventures, the 2022 reboot introduced a deeper exploration of the science behind Project Quantum Leap and a strong emphasis on character development. Season 2 aims to revisit the narrative format of the original, placing greater emphasis on emotionally-driven stories over complex plotlines.
The creative team, led by showrunner Martin Gero, is keen on giving the cast more room to showcase their acting prowess. This means that viewers can anticipate more character-driven performances and a deeper connection with the characters’ experiences.
Ahead of Quantum Leap season 2 premiere, the recently released trailer offers a glimpse into the exciting adventures that await. The trailer hints at leaps to diverse time periods, including Egypt in 1961, the Los Angeles Riots in 1992 Koreatown, a UFO investigation in 1949 New Mexico, and witch trials in 1692 Massachusetts.
Watch the trailer below.
Martin Gero and Dean Georgaris serve as executive producers along with Deborah Pratt, Chris Grismer, Alex Berger, Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt. Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, produce in association with Quinn’s House Productions.
