The Quantum Leap Reboot will address unresolved plotlines from the original series ...

Quantum Leap hasn't been renewed for over three decades, yet the popular science fiction series continues to wreak havoc on a myriad of unresolved plot lines. However, the NBC reboot of the series might resolve some of these burning concerns on Mondays at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 PM Central.

The original Quantum Leap series was released in 1989 and centered on Dr. Sam Beckett, played by Scott Bakula, a physicist who tries to correct historical injustices. One of the original series' loose ends is the character Herbert "Magic" Williams, played by Ernie Hudson. In the original series, Sam quantum jumps into Magic's body in a Season 3 episode.

According to showrunner Martin Gero, Episode 4 of the new reboot will answer that question fairly directly. He continues, praising Hudson's performance in the new reboot. Its truly amazing. It's really, really special.

But Ernie Hudson's character Magic isn't the only original cast member to carry the torch from the original series to the reboot. Deborah Pratt, the original series' co-creator and voice of the A.I. unit Ziggy on the original series, was on hand for filming. Pratt also serves as executive producer on the reboot series.

Gero said of Pratt, "She has had a real connection to the previous show and is there every day with us." "It's unfortunate for anybody to forget about it," he continued, adding, "To be able to have Deborah She's been banging this drum for 20 years," We've got to bring the show back. It's so exciting, not only to do it, but to be able to do it with her.

Quantum Leap is available on NBC Mondays at 10:00/9:00 PM Central, and episodes can be viewed on Peacock the next day.
