Well, I didn’t see this coming. Quantum Leap is making a comeback on NBC:
Plans for a Quantum Leap reboot have been in talks for some time now and on the late Bob Saget’s podcast last year, Bakula mentioned that while there were serious conversations about the potential of a reboot, “the rights were a mess for years.” However, it now seems that things are finally on track. The reboot will take the audience on a twisting ride of action and suspense as a team begins the search for Sam Beckett, years after he has vanished. While casting has yet to be confirmed, it has been said that Bakula will not be returning as a feature for this sequel, although there have been talks for some type of involvement from him.via Game Rant
Apparently, the pilot series will take place 30 years after the events of the original series so that makes it a sequel but it’s also being called a reboot? Whatever, I just wanna see Scott Bakula in it somewhere.
