- Ruth McDevitt's character is referred to variously throughout the series on-screen by various characters and in the cast lists as Emily Fenwick, Emily Cowels, and Edith Cowels. They eventually settled on the name "Emily Cowles." Her character's occupation also alternates between advice columnist, riddle feature writer, and crossword puzzle editor.
- Producer 丹·柯蒂斯 and screenwriter 理查德·麦瑟森 were both approached by Universal to work on the series. Although they had worked on the original made-for-TV movies, they both turned down the offer (they weren't keen on the "Monster of the Week" formula).
- The series was cancelled because 达伦·麦克加文 asked to be released from his contract. He became disappointed with the series' scripts and was exhausted from his uncredited producing duties. Three scripts were left unproduced. Two of them were adapted into a "Kolchak" series of comic books in 2003.
