    I loved the TV series 'Forever' with ioan gruffudd, so would have loved a reboot of that, but just started watching Harrow, an Australian series, also with ioan gruffudd and its very very similar, he is playing almost the same character, without the immortality angle.

    NBC is developing a Life Goes On continuation, not a remake. Kellie Martin will be the lead.

    Another attempt at a Quantum Leap revival.

    The good: Donald P. Bellisario is involved.
    The bad: Scott Bakula isn't involved (yet).
    The good: The story will have Project Quantum Leap being revived 30 years later, so not a clean reboot.
    The bad: The La Brea showrunners are involved.
    The good: Martin Gero (Blindspot, L.A. Complex, Stargate Atlantis, Bored to Death) is involved.

    I thought they'd already turned it into a one-hour serialized drama when they started Next Class, which was trying to mimic a soap-opera daily release. Wonder if this will be a continuation like Degrassi: The Next Generation was, as that one while a reboot, was a bit of both as it continued on from the others and involved the kids of the originals.

    I just hope they're smart enough not to put Drake alone with a bunch of teenage actresses.

    No disrespect intended towards Scott Bakula, but since they obviously can't have Dean Stockwell, I'd prefer Bakula be left out. The team of Bakula and Stockwell defined Quantum Leap so much that IMO if you can't have both, don't bother with either.

    I think it will star Sam's daughter. Since the show is being created by Bellisario I expect him to be respectful to both of the Sam and Al characters and even if it would have been better to see Sam and Al together I think he will still find a decent tribute to the AL character and actor. Bakula I think could even show up from time to time in special episodes.

    I wouldn't worry. He was written out of the show, I think in the 3rd season of Next Gen and given how famous he is now, he's unlikely to return. Would cost too much. This has always been a series done on a low budget.
