The series was green-lit sometime before September 2021[2] and it was officially announced on April 6, 2022.[1] Greg Weisman drafted all six scripts between September and December 2021.[2]

Jason Wright did the color for the promotional posters for season four and each of its arcs on HBO Max. Greg Weisman and Christopher Jones liked his work on them so much, they brought him aboard for Targets.[2]
