[show]Although the series ran for two years (1968-70), the first 12 episodes were filmed in the summer and fall of 1967 to meet the original planned start of the series, which would have been January 1968. The network was originally planning to use "Giants" as a mid-season replacement show. Since nothing needed replacing on their schedule, the series' premiere date was pushed back to the fall of 1968, where it replaced Irwin Allen's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea series on the schedule. The 1967 start of the series' filming helps explain the difference in appearance of Stefan Arngrim from year one to year two, because in actuality THREE years have transpired over the course of the series' 51 episodes.
