Scott Bakula has announced that he will not be a part of NBC's Quantum Leap remake, which he founded in 1989. Dean Stockwell co-starred as Al, a scientist who appeared to Sam as a holographic image during his adventures. Over the course of the five seasons, interest in the show had risen and decreased, and yet nothing ever materialized, such as the first-season Enterprise episode Detained.
Bakula Has Confirmed That He Does Not Part of the Quantum Leap Reboot
Scott Bakula (@scottbakula) has shared a piece.
Stockwell passed away on November 7, 2021, putting an end to any hope of a comeback. However, I have no connection with the new series, either in front of the camera or behind it. On September 15, 2022, fans expressed their displeasure at the prospect of him returning in 30 years.
Bakula spent four years on Enterprise, five on Quantum Leap, and seven on NCIS: New Orleans.
Bakula, who spent seven seasons on NCIS in 2021, is planning a film adaptation. Divinity, described by Deadline as an indie drama with genre elements, also stars Bella Thorne, Stephen Dorff, and Moises Arias, and is directed by Steven Soderbergh.
Unbroken, a television pilot based on Bakula, was not approved for a series by NBC. In the Yellowstone-style drama, created by Shaun Cassidy (New Amsterdam), the story would depict three dynastic ranch families on the central coast of California, battling love and conflict in a passionate struggle to survive.
