Trivia
William Devane (Greg Sumner) was widely praised for his portrayal of President John F. Kennedy in the 1974 TV movie The Missiles of October, which dramatized the events of the Cuban Missile Crisis. In 1963, Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald, who used a rifle. The character of Pierce Lawton, played by Bruce Greenwood, tries to assassinate Greg Sumner with a rifle in season 12. Greenwood himself later starred as President John F. Kennedy in the 2000 film Thirteen Days, which also dramatized the events of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Madison Mason, who plays John Coblenz in Knots Landing, also appears in Thirteen Days, as Admiral George Anderson.

A new arrangement of the series' theme tune, composed by Jerold Immel, was made for every season.

Michelle Phillips first joined the series as scheming Anne Matheson in 1987 for a fixed number of episodes, but she was asked to reprise her role in 1989 after the departure of Donna Mills, the show's main villainess. When audiences felt that the character became too sympathetic, the writers created Claudia Whitaker (played by Kathleen Noone) who was seen as a more devious Abby-like character with whom Anne often battled with.
