Quantum Leap: Season 1 Extended to 18 Episodes

by Neil Bui

NBC has ordered six additional episodes of the Quantum Leap reboot, bringing the first season to a total of 18 episodes, as it becomes the first new series of the 2022-23 broadcast season to extend its season.

The series begins 30 years after the original timeline when Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and disappeared. A new team led by Ben Song played by Raymond Lee has been brought together to restart the project to unravel the mysteries of the machine and its creator.

This drama is the number one NBC current season series on Peacock, a top 5 title on Peacock season-to-date across all genres, and universally praised by all major publications.

The Wall Street Journal calls Quantum Leap “a cult classic in a new body” and that it has “a number of welcome nods to the past.”

Variety adds “the fun of each episode comes with finding out what imbroglio Ben has zapped into this time and figuring out the details as he does.”

Quantum Leap airs on NBC on Mondays at 10pm PST and streams the next day on Peacock.
