Following the original airing order from Star Wars Insider 134, "An Old Friend" was to be the fifth episode of Season Five, but this was later revised to "The Gathering" with an update to Cartoon Network's online schedule. Along with the episodes "The Rise of Clovis" and "Crisis at the Heart," "An Old Friend" was pushed back later in the broadcast order. It did not air in Season Five as originally scheduled.
According to Series Writer Brent Friedman, the story arc that "An Old Friend" is a part of initially included the episode "A Friend in Need," but the arc was later split between seasons, with "A Friend in Need" being released with the series' fourth season.
According to the official Databank, Padmé Amidala's handmaiden Teckla Minnau survived the Clone Wars and went on to marry a writer while serving as handmaiden to Queen Kylantha. However, "An Old Friend" ignored this previous continuity and depicted Minnau's death on Scipio.

"[starting around 27:39] In the early days of The Clone Wars, if you remember, there were—sometimes you'd get a two-episode arc, and then the next season there'd be the prequel to that arc. So I think that Clovis arc was actually part of a four-episode arc, but it was broken up into pieces. There was like that one standalone episode that was the standalone episode in Season Five? If I remember correctly. The one… it's set in the snow? With Ahsoka and Lux."
