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 not renewed Quantum Leap for season 2. Given the ratings over the weeks, it’ll be interesting to see what they do with this one.
Given this is an NBC Original, the show has actually been leaking viewers almost every week, starting with 3.3 million viewers on the pilot episode and since then, dropping viewers every week. You can actually check out the ratings for yourself over at TVSeriesFinale if you’re interested!
NBC have a mixed history with their renewals, with an equal number of new shows sticking around for the long-haul and others getting the axe quite quickly after finishing. Given the viewing figures over the weeks, we predict that this will not be renewed.
We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about a second season given NBC have not officially announced whether this will be renewed or not.
However, there is always the possibility that the actors return for a follow-up or a spin-off if it is cancelled, but again that seems very slim indeed.
We do think this has potential for another season though, especially given how popular the original was back in the day, but for now we’re in the dark over the future of this project.
For the time being, we believe that Quantum Leap will not be returning for another season.
We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
