[show]Jane Wyman and Lorenzo Lamas were the only actors that were part of the main cast through out the entire series. Lorenzo Lamas was the only actor who appeared in all 227 episodes. Jane Wyman was absent in 3 episodes prior to the final season(due to temporary health conditions), and then 16 more episodes during the ninth and final season. That gave Wyman a total of 208 appearances during 227 episodes, which in turn means that David Selby beat Wyman by one episode, even though Selby didn't appear until the start of the second season, as he was present in all 209 episodes from season 2 through 9. Chao Li Chi wasn't a part of the main cast during the 6 first seasons, but still only missed 7 episodes up until season 7. For the last three seasons Chi was promoted to the main cast, with the exception of 7 episodes during season 9 where he was temporarily denoted from the main cast, which gives him the third highest episode count as part of the cast, at 214 episodes. But Chi was in turn absent from another 26 credited episodes during the final three seasons, lowering his actual appearances to 188 episodes, which in turn means that not only David Selby, but also Susan Sullivan passes by Chi in number of appearances, as Sullivan was present during all of the series first 207 episodes, until she left the main cast and the show. Clocking in at 188 appearances, Chi beats Margaret Ladd by five episodes, as Ladd appeared in 183 episodes out of the 193 in which she was part of the cast. (Note: Jane Wyman, Lorenzo Lamas, William R. Moses, Jamie Rose, Abby Dalton and Chao-Li Chi each has one added episode count to their total number of credits in the IMDb database, as they were also present in the unaired pilot.

[show]Shortly before the earthquake cliffhanger, Peter Stavros received an unpleasant phone call in the season finale. The phone call was to set up a storyline for the next season in which Peter's brother would drop into the valley to wage war on the Channings. Anthony Quinn was considered for the role, but the story was scrapped when negotiations with the star failed, and the phone scene turned out to be meaningless.
- The initial choice for the Roland Saunders character was Robert Mitchum.
