Scott Bakula is tweeting to his fans about his involvement in the new Quantum Leap series and at the risk of disappointing everyone, Bakula says “I have no connection with the new show, either in front of the camera or behind it.”
There’s always something sad and uncomfortable about a television or movie reboot not having anything to do with the star who made the character famous but according to his tweets, it was Bakula’s difficult decision to pass on the project.
He says in a series of tweets published on September 15 “In January, the pilot was sold and a script was sent to me because the character of Sam Beckett was in it, which makes sense, right? As so many of you have been asking me the last several months, ‘How could you do QL without Sam?’ (or Al, for that matter) Well, I guess we’re about to find out. That’s the story.”
