Trivia / H2O: Just Add Water

  • The Cast Show Off: Indiana Evans is a singer and sings the opening theme in the third season, as well as being shown singing at Rikki's club.
  • Dawson Casting: Averted in the first two seasons as the three leading actresses were still in high school, but the gap between Seasons 2 and 3 left them playing high school seniors while they were 20/21 in the final season.
  • The Merch: CDs and books have become available in Australia; Kate Alexa's made herself famous by the CD. In the US, dolls of the 3 mermaids were available for a short time.
  • No Export for You:
    • In the US, the last half of Season 2 and the entire third season were held up substantially. The show ended half-way through Season 2 during re-airings in 2008. When TeenNick began re-airing the series in 2011, the remaining episodes still weren't being aired - instead cycling through the same aired episodes again and again. Finally averted on January 16, 2012, where the final thirteen episodes of Season 2 were aired in a TeenNick marathon leading into the US premiere of Season 3. (3 Years after the UK aired the 3rd season.)
    • The rest of the world, including its native Australia, didn't get the 3rd season until 2010, whereas the UK got it first in 2009.
  • Post-Script Season: Only two seasons were planned. But the sheer popularity of the show led to a third being commissioned, as well as two spin-offs. As a result, Claire Holt was already committed to a film in America when the third season was greenlit - resulting in Emma getting Put on a Bus and replaced with Bella.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Emma's Season 2 Love Interest, Ash, became the True Seeker.
  • Romance on the Set:
    • Cariba Heine dated Jamie Timony, who played Nate, while the show was filming.
    • Angus Maclaren and Indiana Evans dated in real life too.
  • Star-Making Role: For Claire Holt and Phoebe Tonkin.
  • What Could Have Been: Gemma Forsyth was nearly cast as Charlotte before the role went to Brittany Byrnes. She would later get to play Evie in Mako Mermaids.
