what becomes of Scott Bakula, the interpreter of Sam Beckett in this cult series of the 90s?

Code Quantum, Here we go again ! The cult series of the 90s made its big comeback on the small American screens (NBC) in a sequel… but without its original hero Sam Beckett is lost (forever?) in a time spiral, the succession is ensured by a whole new scientist who is not afraid of particles, Ben Song, played by Raymond Lee. But will he have the opportunity to meet his “mentor” during one of his adventures through the ages (in the shoes of one or another)? It is not planned in the program… Alas. In short, all this made us want to hear from his interpreter, Scott Bakula. Well done!
