Trivia: When Rachel is talking to Dr. Temple, the name 'Dr. Kôji' is cited as someone who treated Rachel for PPD. This is an in-joke, because the author of the original book, Ring, as well as its sequels Spiral and Loop, is called Kôji Suzuki.
Trivia: Daveigh Chase declined to appear in the sequel because of the small amount of screentime. She appears in the movie via archive footage from the first movie, and her stunt double from the first movie, Kelly Stables, plays evil Samara in this movie.
