·3 min read

NBC’s slate of fall 2022 premiere dates was announced today, showcasing new and returning favorites. Among the lineup are two new series to the network, “Quantum Leap” and “Lopez vs. Lopez.”

“Quantum Leap,” which will launch the network’s scripted programming on September 19, stars Raymond Lee in a reimagination of the classic science fiction series from the early 1990s. The new series, set 30 years after Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished, follows a new team led by physicist Ben Song. Together, the team is tasked to restart the Quantum Leap project, but things quickly go awry when Song makes an unauthorized leap into the past. Now, as Song leaps from life to life and puts right what once went wrong, his team must act fast or risk losing him forever.
