Quantum Leap is getting a reboot almost 30 years after it was last on air.
According to US reports, the time travel series – which starred Scott Bakula and the late Dean Stockwell - is returning for a new season that will be a sequel to the original show.
And it looks as if Bakula could even be involved.
A synopsis from NBC says: "It's been 30 years since Dr Sam Beckett (Bakula) stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished. Now a new team has been assembled to restart the project in the hopes of understanding the mysteries behind the machine and the man who created it."
The sci-fi series followed physicist Dr Sam Beckett, who travelled through time and took the place of other people to correct mistakes in history.
It also featured Stockwell as the doctor’s best friend Al. He appeared to Dr Beckett as a hologram and tried to help him however he could, whilst often getting distracted by his love of a good time.
The series aired for five seasons, from 1989 to 1993.
It ended with Dr Beckett failing to return home from an adventure, leaving fans guessing about what happened to him.
In recent years there has been talk about a movie version of the show being in the works.
Stockwell died last year at the age of 85.
A representative for the star told TMZ.com that he passed away peacefully at home on Sunday 7th November.
