by Neil Bui

At San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, NBC brought the different TV worlds of Law & Order, SVU, Organized Crime, The Voice, and Chucky, in an experience for fans that involves stabilizing the timelines in order to provide the Quantum Leap team with the time needed for them to rid their supercomputer Ziggy of its virus.

Quantum Leap Season 2 premieres Wednesday, October 4 at 9/8c on NBC and will be available the next day for streaming on Peacock.

And in the meantime as we await the premiere of Season 2, be sure to check out the Dorkaholics interviews with cast members Mason Alexander Park and Nanrisa Lee, who play Ian Wright and Jenn Chu respectively.

The interviews with Mason Alexander Park and Nanrisa Lee discuss themes of the show which include the importance of recognizing everybody’s individuality as well as the value of providing visibility and representation. And for everyone’s convenience, the video interviews are available below.

About Quantum Leap: It’s been nearly 30 years since Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished. Now, a new team, led by physicist Ben Song (Raymond Lee), has been assembled to restart the project in the hope of understanding the mysteries behind the machine and the man who created it.

Everything changes, however, when Ben makes an unauthorized leap into the past, leaving the team behind to solve the mystery of why he did it. At Ben’s side throughout his leaps is Addison (Caitlin Bassett), who appears in the form of a hologram only Ben can see and hear. She’s a decorated Army veteran who brings level-headed precision to her job.

At the helm of the highly confidential operation is Herbert “Magic” Williams (Ernie Hudson), a no-nonsense career military man who has to answer to his bosses who won’t be happy once they learn about the breach of protocol. The rest of the team at headquarters includes Ian Wright (Mason Alexander Park), who runs the Artificial Intelligence unit “Ziggy,” and Jenn Chou (Nanrisa Lee), who heads up digital security for the project.

As Ben leaps from life to life, putting right what once went wrong, it becomes clear that he and the team are on a thrilling journey. However, Addison, Magic, Ian and Jenn know that if they are going to solve the mystery of Ben’s leaps and bring him home, they must act fast or lose him forever.
