Quantum Leap is back after taking its winter break. It’s time to get some answers as to why Ben is leaping. What time will the winter premiere air tonight, Monday, Jan. 2?
Just as we got answers about the fixed point Ben is trying to leap to, Quantum Leap went on a break. That wasn’t too surprising, though. Broadcast shows go on a break around Thanksgiving or just before Christmas and then return in the New Year. And there is usually some sort of cliffhanger ending to bring us back when the show comes back.
That’s the case here. We now know that Ben is trying to leap to Addison’s death. He needs to stop that from happening, and that’s the fixed point he wants to get to. After that, he should be able to get back. But has he managed to fix the code properly?
Quantum Leap Season 1, Episode 9 release time on NBC
We need to watch the winter premiere to get some sort of idea. When will Quantum Leap Season 1, Episode 9 air on NBC tonight, Monday, Jan. 2?
The show is keeping the timeslot that has worked well for it in the fall. We’ll get the new episode at 10 p.m. ET/PT. You can watch the episode the following day on Peacock.
While the live ratings don’t look great, this is a show performing extremely well in delayed ratings. NBC is so happy with it that the series has already been renewed for a second season.
