Beloved 90's sci-fi show 'Quantum Leap' is the latest show to get the reboot treatment.

A pilot episode has been ordered by NBC, the channel that originally ran the show from 1989 until 1993.

The show will take place after the events of the infamous original series finale in which Scott Bakula's Dr. Sam Beckett never returned after stepping into the Quantum Leap accelerator.

The new pilot will follow a team of scientists in the modern day who are attempting to understand the mysteries of the machine and the motives of Dr. Beckett.

'Quantum Leap' used the titular device to place the show's characters into random years and events from American history, and Dr. Beckett would find himself in control of random people throughout American history "putting what once went wrong and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home".

Star Scott Bakula is not currently attached to the pilot in any form, but per the original Deadline article, the actor is "aware of the project and has had conversations about potentially getting involved".

Should the show progress to a full series order, it would of course be missing one major element of the original show: Dean Stockwell as Al.

The actor passed away last November, with his co-star Scott Bakula stating at the time "I loved him dearly and was honoured to know him, he made me a better human being.”

News of the potential reboot emerged last year, with Bakula discussing how it took years for the idea to gain traction.

"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," he said in a podcast interview with Bob Saget.

Over the course of its original run, 'Quantum Leap' ran for 97 episodes with Bakula garnering 4 consecutive Emmy nominations for Best Lead Actor In A Drama Series.

The show was initially slated to be cancelled in its 3rd season, but a dedicated fan campaign where fans bombarded NBC with letters convinced them to renew the show for 2 more seasons.

The proposed reboot will be handled by writers and producers of the current NBC show 'La Brea' and the long-running 'Blindspot, which were both NBC productions.

No word as of yet on when this rebooted pilot will see a release or if it will debut on traditional television or streaming, but hopefully the pilot will answer the question of what happened to Dr. Beckett.
