Clinton Derricks-Carroll, the identical twin brother of Cleavant Derricks, played his character Rembrandt's alter ego in Sliders: The King Is Back (1995), Sliders: Greatfellas (1996), and Sliders: The Prince of Slides (1996). In their two second-season appearances together, more make-up was used to cause virtually no audience member to be able to tell them apart. Both times, Clevant and Clinton actually swapped roles during the final scenes, and no one was aware that Clinton was the one playing the Rembrandt who slid with the other main characters.

The device used to activate the wormholes to enable sliding is an old modified Motorola cellphone, the MicroTAC. The new device acquired to slide in season three appeared to be a common television remote control. The device used for sliding in "Exodus" parts I and II was a modified Sega Genesis controller.

Even though the production of the show went on continuously between seasons three and four, it had a year hiatus from airing when it was dropped by "FOX," and picked up by "Syfy," making the airing years (1995-1997, 1998-2000). The visual effects in the fourth season take a very noticeable dive in quality, as the series had just been cancelled by "FOX" before being resurrected by the "Syfy Channel," which left the show with an overall lower production budget.
