'Quantum Leap' Trailer Jumps Straight Into an Explosive Reboot

The classic '90s time travel adventure gets an action-packed makeover on NBC and Peacock.

Oh boy. This is the action-packed trailer for Quantum Leap, a reboot of a much-loved 1990s TV show about a good-hearted time traveler, coming to NBC and Peacock this month.

Raymond Lee plays a physicist who makes an unauthorized leap through time only to find himself in the body of a 1980s bank robber. In fact, he keeps jumping into various people throughout the past few decades, forced to solve their problems so he can leap again -- each time hoping the next leap takes him home.

Judging from the explosive trailer, the new show may be a bit more high-octane than the original. Judge for yourself when the new Quantum Leap premieres Monday, Sept. 19, on NBC, streaming next day on Peacock. That's the way the streaming service starts showing new episodes of NBC shows, the day after they air on TV, including Law & Order, One Chicago, La Brea, New Amsterdam, Young Rock and the network's late-night lineup, including The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers and Saturday Night Live.

The series also stars Caitlin Bassett as a holographic helper, with Ernie Hudson back at base alongside Nanrisa Lee and Sandman star Mason Alexander Park.

Airing from 1989-93, the original Quantum Leap starred Scott Bakula as Sam Beckett, a scientist landing in a different person's body each week. Dean Stockwell, who died in November 2021, played Sam's sharp-dressed holographic guide, Al.

Reboots from the '90s are currently popular as they sit on streaming services next to the original shows. Peacock already resurrected Saved by the Bell and reimagined The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air as a drama. Disney Plus turned Doogie Howser into Doogie Kamealoha MD, The Wonder Years gained a new Black cast, and Walker Texas Ranger was re-(cowboy)-booted on the CW.
