Quantum Leap, back in the 1990s that starred Scott Bakula and the late Dean Stockwell, was certainly a guilty pleasure viewing on television.

It’s certainly addicting to watch Dr. Sam Beckett leap into a new person every week with hopes that he comes home back to the future. And his interaction with the holographic Al certainly lights up the mood as his friend.

Now Quantum Leap is back as a reboot, or rather as a revival. In this new trailer alone, some of the storyline leaps may be familiar to fans of the original series. It’ll be interesting on how the writers make the series fresh for 21st-century audiences.

Here is the official synopsis:

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 leap and bring him home, they must act fast or lose him forever.
