The clapperboard snaps down after the first few seconds and the camera races through the island. Sasha is painting her nails and the camera spills her nail polish, making her upset. Jeanna and Lance are balancing on a balance beam before falling off. Elliott then ushers the camera to the firepit, where the campers whistle the ending.
- This season premiered 5 months after Season 17 finished airing. This was due to a hiatus/cancellation of the show that lasted from November to May.
- Chris McLean and Chef Hatchet are back to host the season! Chef hasn't been the co-host since the first Frye Island season, and Chris took a vacation for Season 17.
- Gorham Middle School from Seasons 5 and 12 appeared as a destroyed wreck where the contestants had to do a challenge in the episode "Deterioration of a Middle School."
- The moon camp from Season 16 appeared in "Give Me Some Space" when the contestants flew to the moon by accident.
- The first episode has the same title as the first two of Total Drama: Frye Island, due to this being a sequel season, with only the word 'Back' added to it.
