Scott Bakula talks Quantum Leap reboot

Bakula’s co-star Dean Stockwell, 85, is still alive and well – so could possibly make a return too

That long-gestating reboot of “Quantum Leap” could be back on the cards.

Scott Bakula, star of the original ’80s classic, told Bob Saget’s podcast that talks are underway to revive the time-travel adventure series.

The “N.C.I.S : New Orleans” actor, noting that he’s had talks with series creator Donald P. Bellisario about the show returning on numerous occasions, said “very significant conversations” are happening.

As for whether Bakula would be back as Dr. Sam Beckett, or whether it’d be some kind of different take on the original, the actor isn’t sure.

“I don’t know what it would be. I don’t know who would have it. The rights were a mess for years. I don’t know if they’re even sorted out now. That’s always been the biggest complication.”

Bakula’s co-star Dean Stockwell, 85, is still alive and well – so could possibly make a return too if the producers opted to tap into the original’s fandom.

Free Guy will be on Digital, 4K, Blu-Ray, DVD and Disney+ September 29!
