Will Quantum Leap starring Raymond Lee be cancelled?

The show that tries to rewrite history by leaping back to the past is facing an uncertain future, says one of its stars.

Allyson Bassett who plays Addison, Ben Song’s love interest on Quantum Leap, says it’s not known whether the science fiction thriller will be renewed for a third season.

Song is played by Korean American Raymond Lee, one of the few Asian American leads currently on network television.

 “We really don’t know,” she told TV Insider. We know the live numbers, but we don’t know the Peacock numbers. We don’t know the international numbers, and we honestly don’t know what their decision point’s going to turn on,” she admits. “So please write into NBC and let ’em know you love the show. But yeah, it’s really up to the fans honestly at this point. And we hope to do it for a decade. Because it’s a show that can.”

The ratings for the show are up slightly from season 1, about 4 percent, reports TV Series Finale. However, the audience in the key 18-49 advertising group is down 21 percent from a year ago.

The show’s two-hour season finale is scheduled to air on Wednesday, February 20 on NBC and then stream on Peacock.

After that, no one knows.

Substack writer Dennis Frymire has launched a Save Quantum Leap letter writing campaign.

The show is a reboot from the late 1980s to the early 90s. It faced cancellation in the middle of season 3, but fans saved the program and it ended up airing a complete five seasons.

He’s urging fans to contact NBC through any of the following:
