‘Quantum Leap’ Adds Peter Gadiot and Eliza Taylor as Series Regulars for Season 2 (EXCLUSIVE)

“Quantum Leap” will come back for Season 2 at NBC with two new series regulars: Peter Gadiot and Eliza Taylor.

One of the few scripted projects returning to broadcast TV this fall amid the Hollywood strikes, “Quantum Leap” is a sequel to the 1989 to 1993 NBC drama of the same name and set 30 years later after Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished. In the new series, Raymond Lee stars as Ben Song, who makes an unauthorized leap into the past, leaving his team behind to solve the mystery of why he did it.

More from Variety

Taylor will play Hannah Carson, who is described as “a complex young woman who may be more than she appears” and will be introduced in Episode 3.

Gadiot will play Tom Westfall, a U.S. Army Officer, former special forces, who is now high up in Army Intelligence. He is described as “thoughtful, centered, a spiritual kind of warrior who both men and women admire, but whose humility keeps him from ever being arrogant” and will take on a crucial role overseeing the Quantum Leap project.

Gadiot’s prominent credits include playing James Valdez in USA’s “Queen of the South” and Cyrus in ABC’s “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.” More recently, he played Adam in Season 1 of Showtime’s “Yellowjackets” and Shanks in Netflix’s “One Piece.” He is repped by Gersh Agency, Industry Entertainment and Hansen, Jacobson, Kaller, et. al.

Taylor is best known for starring in the CW sci-fi series “The 100” as Clarke Griffin and the Australian soap opera “Neighbours” as Janae Timmins. She is repped by Verve and Fourward.

The Season 2 premiere, which airs Oct. 4, will feature guest stars Melissa Roxburgh (“Manifest”), Francois Arnaud (“Plan B,” “Blindspot”), Aaron Abrams (“Hannibal,” “Blindspot”) and P.J. Byrne (“The Boys, Shazam! Fury of the Gods”).

“Quantum Leap” is executive produced by Martin Gero, Dean Georgaris, Deborah Pratt, Chris Grismer, Alex Berger, Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt. Universal Television produces in association with Quinn’s House Productions.
