Quantum Leap is coming back for more. The Hollywood Reporter announced today that the NBC series has been given an order for six more episodes. The series, which is a reboot of the classic series of the same name, launched in September to 3.35 million viewers. After three episodes, the series looks to be averaging just under 3 million total same-day viewers. It is also ranked as the number one new show in the all-too-important 18-49 demographic.
The reboot stars Raymond Le as Dr. Ben Seong, a scientist and a man of faith who is part of a team trying to revive the project which saw the disappearance of Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) almost 30 years ago.
Le, Ernie Hudson, Caitlin Bassett, Mason Alexander Park and Nanrisa Lee star in the rebooted series. While original series star Scott Bakula was expected to return for the reboot, he has since confirmed he is not involved with the project, despite his image being used in the pilot episode.
Quantum Leap creator Don Bellisario serves as executive producer for the sequel series, while Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt (Gotham) were originally set as the showrunners, but they stepped down after the third episode, Martin Gero has since taken over showrunner duties.
