How many episodes will there be in 'Quantum Leap' Season 2?

While there's no confirmed episode count yet for Quantum Leap Season 2, we can make a strong guess based on the first season.

Initially, Quantum Leap had a 13 episode count. However, NBC ordered 6 additional episodes for the show's inaugural season, leaving Quantum Leap Season 1 with 19 episodes in total.

Based on that, it's safe to say that Quantum Leap Season 2 will have at least 15-19 episodes in total, if not more! (Hey, why can't Quantum Leap fans aim higher for future episode counts?)

While we eagerly await further news on Quantum Leap Season 2 (we'll be sure to keep fans posted), you can stream Quantum Leap Season 1, now on Peacock.
