Season 1: 1984–1985

Season one of Miami Vice premiered on September 16, 1984 with the two hour pilot premiere on NBC. The first season concluded on May 10, 1985, after 22 episodes. Season one regular cast members included Don Johnson, Philip Michael Thomas, Saundra Santiago, Gregory Sierra, Michael Talbott, John Diehl, Olivia Brown and Edward James Olmos.

The first season was filmed on location in Miami, Florida.[17] The show's crew took up semipermanent residence in the Alexander Hotel for the first season.[17] They later worked out of Greenwich Studios.[18] Episodes were produced at an average cost of $1.3 million, which compared to a typical cop-show episode of $1 million is much higher.[17] The show went to unusual lengths to get the right settings and props for each episode.[17] Music which was an integral part of the show was looked at differently. The show's directors looked for creative ways to use music on the show.[17] Unlike other television shows at the time that used rock music,[17] Miami Vice would buy the rights to original records rather than imitations.[17] The show would spend up to $10,000 per episode for original recordings on artists like Todd Rundgren, U2, and Frankie Goes to Hollywood to name a few.[17] Jan Hammer, the show's musical composer, would create the rest of the show's musical score.

Hammer used the Fairlight CMI IIx, a computer based music workstation consisting of an 8-bit sampler, digital synthesizer, midi controller and sequencer. The Fairlight enabled to Hammer to score and perform the entire show's music single handedly.[17] Jan would work out of his state-of-the-art studio in his 150-year-old home in Brewster, New York composing the score for each episode.[17]

The film crew on the show, was 95% local to the Miami area.[18] Various filming locations on the show included: Downtown Miami, Old Miamarina (Bayside Market Place), Opa Locka Airport, Biscayne Boulevard, Key Biscayne, Florida, Venetian Causeway, Coconut Grove, South Beach, North Miami Beach, St. Croix, McArthur Causeway, Ocean Drive, and Tamiami Trail.[18]

- Weldon's computer is named Lorraine, after his wife who left him per his character's backstory for this episode, but Lorraine is also the name of the Amiga prototype that appeared at the Consumer Electronics Show in Chicago, held on January 4th, 1984. Interestingly, the Amiga prototype took its name from the motherboard, which was named Lorraine, after the company president's wife. This seems to be a tongue-in-cheek joke when Weldon retorts to Tubb's statement that the Vice Dept. has computers "just like this...", pointing to Lorraine, to which Weldon replies: "Really?

Season 5: 1988–1989

Season five of Miami Vice is the final season of the series. The season premiered on November 4, 1988, with the episode "Hostile Takeover (Part 3)". The series concluded on May 21, 1989, with "Freefall" after 17 episodes, but later NBC aired three new episodes after the series finale. They were "World of Trouble" (June 14, 1989), "Miracle Man" (June 21, 1989), and "Leap of Faith" (June 28, 1989). Additionally, USA Network aired "Too Much, Too Late" on January 25, 1990, since NBC would not show that episode due to its strong topic of child molestation (NBC and USA are now owned by the same company). Season five regular cast members included Don Johnson, Philip Michael Thomas, Saundra Santiago, Michael Talbott, Olivia Brown and Edward James Olmos.
