Skam Italia follows the same set-up as the original series in where short clips are released throughout the week as well as social media posts and text message conversations.
A Italian adaptation was confirmed along with German, French, Spanish and Dutch versions by The Hollywood Reporter in October 2017. They also confirmed that series would be released on TIMvision.
Filming for the first season began in October 2017 and was completed December 2. On March 9, 2018, the first trailer was released for the season revealing the premiere date for the first clip which would be March 23. A countdown was also added to the website counting done to that date. The first episode premiered on March 29, 2018, making it the third remake to be released. Since TIMvision is a premium streaming service clips where only viewable to the public for one hour, and afterwards could only be seen by TIMvision subscribers (This method of distribution was also used for Season 2).
In June 2018, the series was renewed for a second and third season. Filming began on June 19 and was completed around the end of July. On July 2, 2018 it was confirmed that the Season 2 main would be Martino, diverging from the original series as Martino's counterpart Isak was the main for Season 3. The first teaser trailer for the season was released September 16 which revealed the season's first clip's premiere date, October 5, 2018. A second trailer was released 11 days later. The first episode was released on October 12 exclusively to TIMvision subscribers, two days later it was released for public viewing on the Skam Italia site.
Filming for Season 3 began in October 2018 and was completed around December. Because this season's production overlapped with Season 2 airing, the series' main director, Ludovico Bessegato was unable to commit due to be to busy so production was given to Ludovico Di Martino. A teaser for the season was released on March 9, 2019 confirming the release date of the first clip to be March 11. A second trailer was released a few days later on March 7. Once the first clip was released, it was revealed that all the clips and episodes would be only available on TIMvision.
On July 21, 2019, series showrunner Ludovico Bessegato expressed concerned that Skam Italia would be getting a fourth season in an interview. On August 7, he posted an Instagram story indicting bad news and expressed gratitude towards all the cast and crew of the series. It was subsequently confirmed that Skam Italia would not be returning and had been cancelled by TIMvision. However, in October rumors started to circulate that the fourth season had started filming meaning that the cancelation had been reversed. About week later in November, it was seemingly confirmed that the series will be returning as one of the actors, Massimo Reale posted on set pictures on his Facebook profile with the caption "Skam 4." Featured in the photos were Ludovico Tersigni, Francesco Centorame, Federico Cesari and Nicolas Zerbini as well a video monitor (featuring Beatrice Bruschi) in the background of one of the pictures. In December 2019, Netflix Italy revealed that the first three season will be avaliable on January 1, 2020 and that Season 4 will be released at later date in 2020. On April 17, it was announced that all episodes of season 4 would be released on May 15, 2020 on Netflix Italy and TIMvision. The final episode contains the POVs of different characters: Silvia, Luca, Giovanni, Niccolò, Filippo, Elia.
