Vox Media planned to have ten weeks to work on each episode; however, the first episode was rushed to be released in two-and-a-half weeks due to the prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic. They had already interviewed Bill Gates for an episode in season 2 of Explained called "The Next Pandemic" before the pandemic began, and Vox Media ended up using some of that footage for their first episode.
The trailer for the mini-series was released on April 22, 2020. The first episode was released on April 26, 2020, with the second and third episode scheduled to be released during the summer of 2020.
