[show]CBS initially did not want to continue with the series for the fall of 1981, even though the show's ratings were still respectable. Kenneth Johnson claimed that Harvey Sheppard, then head of CBS programming, felt that the series had run its course, and canceled it. With seven new episodes already filmed, Johnson tried unsuccessfully to persuade Sheppard to buy more episodes; also, according to Lou Ferrigno's book My Incredible Life As the Hulk, Bill Bixby talked to other networks about picking up the show, but no deal could be reached in time to keep the series in production. Nevertheless, CBS aired those seven episodes sporadically during the 1981-82 season. Due to the sudden cancellation, the producers never had a chance to plan a series finale, in which David Banner would have been successfully cured of the Hulk.
- The word "Anger" is the first thing seen onscreen in every episode. The camera pulls out to reveal that it is the word "danger" on the Gamma Ray device.
