In this series, prior to his accident, Johnny is a science teacher. In the previous film, as well as in the original novel, he was an English teacher, like author Stephen King himself.

Johnny's hairstyle changes back and forth several times during the episodes "Wheel of Fortune" and "What It Seems" because of reshoots that were done a year after the initial filming.

What are the differences with the novel and movie?
A better question would be what the simularities are. Few things featured in The Dead Zone series have something to do with the book. For example: Johnny and Sarah never had a son, Gene Purdy, Dana Bright and Bruce are characters made for this show, Walt Bannerman is a fusion between Sheriff George Bannerman and Walter Hazlett (Sarah's husband) from the book. Johnny's parents are both alive in the book even though his mother dies from a stroke (not from suicide as in the series). Some events from the series (like Johnny trying to stop a fire at a school party) are actually taken from the book.
