1. Nanrisa Lee Plays Jenn Chou On Quantum Leap

Quantum Leap returns on TV after the original series ended with the main lead, Dr. Sam BeBeckett, never making it back home. The new series is the revival version which shows the premise of the original one.

In the new one, a similar story follows but producers Donald P. Bellisario has come up with some new twists. In this series, a talented physicist Dr. Ben Song is now in charge of maintaining the Quantum Leap technology after Sam was trapped in it.

Thus, Ben and his team relaunched the program to finally bring Sam back after decades of struggling his way through history. However, somehow Dr. Ben goes through the same thing that Sam did in the past. The entire crew collaborates to figure out how Ben got sent into the past and attempt to return him to his own timeline.

Ben Song, Addison Augustin, Herbert "Magic" Williams, Ian Wright, and Jenn Chou are the show's five main characters. In addition, Raymond Lee is cast as Dr. Ben Song, the character who will end up traveling back in time to the Quantum Leap project.

Likewise, Caitlin Bassett will play Addison Augustin, a love interest of Ben. She will appear as a hologram to help Ben guide what to do in his next leap. 

In the third season episode, "The Leap Home (Part 2) - Vietnam," Sam leaped into Herbert "Magic" Williams, a veteran of the Vietnam war who worked with Tom Beckett, brother of Sam. Christopher Kirby previously played the role and is now replaced by Ernie Hudson. He is the head of the new Quantum Leap program.
