Peter Gadiot is taking a leap…
The 36-year-old half-Mexican actor and Queen of the South star and Eliza Taylor have been named series regulars for the upcoming second season of Quantum Leap, NBC’s reboot of the popular 1990s sci-fi drama starring Raymond Lee. Both deals closed before the strikes began.
Per the Season 1 logline: it’s “been 30 years since Dr. Sam Beckett 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.”
Gadiot portrays Tom Westfall, a U.S. Army Officer, former special forces, who is now high up in Army Intelligence.
Taylor will play Hannah Carson, a complex young woman who may be more than she appears.
In addition to Lee, Quantum Leap stars Ernie Hudson, Caitlin Bassett, Mason Alexander Park and Nanrisa Lee.
Martin Gero serves as executive producer along with Dean Georgaris, Don Bellisario, Deborah Pratt, Chris Grismer, Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt.
Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, produces in association with I Have an Idea! Entertainment, Belisarius Productions and Quinn’s House Productions.
Season 2 of Quantum Leap premieres on October 4 on NBC, with episodes streaming the next day after airing on Peacock.
