After two seasons, “Quantum Leap” has come to an end … again. NBC has canceled the sci-fi drama, TheWrap has learned.

Starring Raymond Lee as Dr. Ben Song, a physicist that gets sucked into the past, the revival originally premiered in 2022. The show was set 30 years after the events of the original “Quantum Leap” and revolved around Ben and his team restarting the same machine that sucked Sam Beckett into history all those years ago. The series followed a new generation of scientists who leap through the bodies of different people throughout space and time, fixing mistakes and learning life lessons along the way.

In addition to Lee, the drama starred Caitlin Bassett, Mason Alexander Park, Nanrisa Lee, Ernie Hudson, Peter Gadiot and Eliza Taylor. The new version was developed by Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt with Donald P. Bellisario, the original series’ creator, serving as executive producer.

Season 1 of the series premiered in the fall of 2022, while Season 2 followed in October 2023.

“Quantum Leap” is the latest show to receive its next season fate from NBC. In November, freshman dramas “Found” and “The Irrational” were both given Season 2 orders. The network also recently announced that it had greenlit new seasons of “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago Med,” “Chicago P.D.,” “Law & Order” and “Law & Order: SVU” for the 2024-25 season. The only drama that’s fate is currently undecided is “Law & Order: Organized Crime.”

The original “Quantum Leap” premiered on NBC in the late ’80s and ran for five seasons. The series was helmed by Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett.

Deadline was first to report this news.
