- Fans speculated that this season would be an All-Stars edition based on the deceased guests in the crystal at the end of Season 3. Joey confirmed this on Instagram.
- Some fans have made the connection that the order the guests were introduced in the glass breaking scene in the first episode is the order they die in this season (Justine being first, Timothy being second, and DeStorm being third), however, Colleen's death breaks this chain. It is actually set in the order of when they died initially.
- This is the first season to feature guests that died in the previous seasons.
- Alex, DeStorm, Tana and Gabbie are from Season 2, Rosanna and Colleen are from Season 3, Timothy and Justine are from season 1, and Joey from all three previous seasons, making the guests Season 2 heavy.
- Season 4 is the only season to occur in purgatory rather than a place that is trapped in time in the real world.
- Every promo trailer for the guests featured sounds from when they died, however, since Bretman has not died, no audio plays.
- Justine appears to be angry in the billboard picture, and the Escape the Night Instagram team responded with, "She is."
- Joey tried to get Lele to return, but she never responded to him, so her spot as a competitor/special guest was passed over. Joey also said that he wanted Liza and Shane to return, but both had problems with their schedules that prevented them, though Liza was able to guest star in Episode 1.
- Season 4's first episode aired on July 11, 2019, airing later in the year than the other seasons.

- Season 4 is the first season to have a previous assistant (Mortimer) return to aid the guests.
- This is the first time we see an antagonist (the Sorceress) go from enemy to ally.
- Episode 7 was the first time any guest had volunteered to take the place of someone who had been voted into a challenge.
- Episode 8 will be the second episode of the series to contain the revival of a deceased guest. The first example of this is in the 7th episode of Season 3, where Matthew Patrick was revived.

- Season 4 is the only season where the guests don’t vote for themselves in the final voting session.
- Season 4 is the only season to not include a challenge where the voted-in guests had to choose a partner to either help or fight for them.
- Rosanna Pansino now holds the record for most episodes in a row being alive without being in a challenge, 8, beating Eva Gutowski's record of 7.
- Season 4 is the first season to not have any form of a special episode, within and/or after the season.
- There was a behind the scenes video on Joey's YouTube channel, but is not counted as it is not part of the Premium episodes, like in previous seasons.
