‘Quantum Leap’ Canceled By NBC After Only 2 Seasons

The show’s two-hour Season 2 finale aired on February 20, 2024.

News recently reported that NBC canceled ‘Quantum Leap.’ The second season of the 1989 series’ reboot was among the lowest-rated scripted originals on the network.

NBC gave ‘Quantum Leap’ a quick renewal for a new season back in December 2022 to keep its schedule filled with new scripted shows during the writers and actors strikes. But the reboot is the first show dropped this season.

NBC previously renewed five of its six Dick Wolf-produced shows. The network also ended ‘La Brea’ after three seasons and ‘Magnum P.I.’ after six seasons eariler this year.

The Season Finale Completed The Story

Martin Gero, Dean Georgaris, Deborah Pratt, Chris Grismer, and Alex Berger co-produced ‘Quantum Leap’ 2022. The show focused on a new team of researchers thirty years after Dr. Sam Beckett’s disappearance in the accelerator.

Georgaris mentioned the rebooted series’ finale in a February chat with Deadline. The writer explained:

“When we got the early renewal for Season 2, we knew we were not going to end it on a cliffhanger. We were going to end it on the first scene from Season 3, and we’re going to end it with the two characters together, but in a way that you never expected. And that sort of says to the audience, ‘look at all the great places we can go.’ So, if it feels like a completion for audiences, that’s wonderful. It is a completion of part of the journey, but I think for us, it serves as the launch for the rest of the journey.”

Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt served as the showrunners. ‘Quantum Leap’ featured actors Raymond Lee, Ernie Hudson, Caitlin Bassett, Mason Alexander Park, and Nanrisa Lee.
