Renewed Or Cancelled?
Quantum Leap is the latest remake coming out of Hollywood, this time from NBC. Serving as a sequel and reimagining at the same time, the show has had quite the rollercoaster ride across its season.
If you’ve been following this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Well, wonder no more! Here’s what we know about a renewal:
What is Quantum Leap Season 1 about?
Quantum Leap is set in the present day, 30 years after main character Sam Beckett vanished into the Quantum Leap accelerator. This new show is inspired by the original, but doesn’t serve as a reboot, rather as a sequel to the original.
The new Quantum Leap sees Dr Song serve as our protagonist, who is experimenting with time leaps within a similar episodic structure as the original.
Has Quantum Leap been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, NBC have renewed Quantum Leap for season 2. Given the ratings over the weeks, that’s certainly great news for fans of the series but also comes at a bit of a surprise.
The series has actually been leaking viewers almost every week, starting with 3.3 million viewers on the pilot episode and since then, dropping viewers until the latest (episode 9 at the time of writing this) down to 1.7. You can actually check out the ratings for yourself over at TVSeriesFinale if you’re interested!
NBC have a mixed history with their renewals, but despite our initial thoughts, the renewal for this one comes as something of a surprise… but a welcome one nonetheless! You can atully read more about this over at Variety in this article.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about a second season given NBC have only just officially announced the renewal on this one. Given how popular the original was back in the day, expect more episodic romps as our characters jump through time and get into all sorts of mishaps.
