There were three alliances this season and one of them is not mentioned as an alliance, even though Studio 21 claims it is one. This season brings back the theme of alliances. There were no alliances in the previous few seasons.
- Mark and Lisa: They came from Total Drama: Frye Island together and this season, they immediately hooked up as an unnamed alliance and helped each other without backstabbing through the season. It ended when Mark was eliminated in episode 7. The alliance totally ended when Lisa was eliminated in episode 11.
- Griffin and Lyndon: The boys' alliance on Greenmere Meadows is this one. Griffin forms this alliance after the early merge (episode 6 merge) and recruits Lyndon. The girls are outnumbering the guys so they form it to stay safe. The alliance ended when Griffin was eliminated by Lyndon, who had invincibility, and backstabbed Griffin, in Stork Raving Mad.
- Lyndon and Carly: They were both close to being eliminated, but in 'Want Some Cheese With That Whine?' they form an alliance to save each other's butts. They got to the final three via the alliance and eliminated Lisa to get further into the game. But, when Carly had a breakdown in A Breath of Cloudy Air, she voted herself off, and Tristan voted for her too, the alliance ended.
The confessional came back for this season. It has not appeared in any season for a major purpose, but it returned 6 episodes in for this season. It was used a few times after episode 6.
- It is revealed that Greenmere Meadows is not real, and is actually located on a disguised movie soundstage in Vancouver, Canada!
- For this season, the theme of a new location continues. Season 1 had Mekapanema, 2 had Frye Island, 3 had Omiyosiw Mountain, 4 had Luckiamute Forest, 5 had Gorham Middle School, 6 had Katawasisin Island, and 8 has Greenmere Meadows. The only season to not have a new location is Season 7, in which Camp Mekapanema returns.
- This season is confirmed to take place 4 years after Total Drama Island, as Beth reveals that she is 20 years old.
- Mark, who became a mutant in Total Drama: Frye Island, converts back to a normal-sized human this season. His hair remains green and his skin also remains blue.
- Harold barely talks in the season, and he is eliminated due to it.
- In the episode It's Elimination Time, where the teams get merged early, Claire makes a subtle reference to the former co-creator, Kiera Emerson, by mentioning the remaining campers will live in the "red-roofed cabin." Kiera's cabin on Frye Island was nicknamed "The Red-Roofed Cabin" due to its red metal roof.
