A sequel to the beloved Quantum Leap series arrives on NBC on Monday, and star Scott Bakula (above, left) has taken to his Instagram account to share his thoughts about the new series and to clarify his involvement.
The original Quantum Leap series ran for five seasons on the peacock network, from 1989 until 1993, and saw scientist Sam Beckett (Bakula) stuck traveling through time, temporarily taking the place of different people and being stuck there until he could correct something that had gone wrong. Helping him on his journey is his friend, Al Calavicci (Dean Stockwell, above, right), who appears to Sam as a hologram.
Raymond Lee, Caitlin Bassett, Ernie Hudson, Mason Alexander Park, and Nanrisa Lee star in the new Quantum Leap series, which finds a new team in charge of the Quantum Leap project who is on a quest to understand it and to find out what happened to Sam.
