As the character of Murphy continued to evolve, it was decided that the blue skin aspect of the character would be removed. This was largely due to the fact that the makeup itself was extremely irritating to actor Keith Allan, causing some minor skin complications as he had no choice but to wear the make up sometimes over 12 hours a day during filming.

Actor Joseph Gatt, who portrayed Season 3 antagonist "The Man" was intended to reprise the role in Season 4. However, Gatt became active in many other projects and parted ways with the show. The character's death is purposefully left ambiguous, as one of his trademark abilities is a penchant for overcoming nearly impossible odds and surviving mortal wounds. The inconclusive nature of the character's death (hinted at briefly in S04E01) leaves the door open for Gatt to reprise the role at a future date, which is a common theme on the show.

As of Season 4, although still listed in the credits as part of the main cast, Anastasia Baranova is no longer a regular member of the cast and has been reduced to "recurring" status. Anastasia's contract is non-restricted, leaving her open to pursue other projects. During filming for Season 4, Anastasia was already tied to 3 other projects, including 2 television series and a movie. The character of Addy has therefore been temporarily written out of the show until Anastasia can commit to working on it again.

The likeness is taken further when they are introduced once after having obviously been tarred and feathered.
