Zane posted an update on September 13, 2010 on Facebook about the future of the show:
"Many of you have asked about the return of “Zane’s Sex Chronicles” on Cinemax for a third season and I realize that a lot of you ordered the channel just for me. Again, I appreciate you. I wanted to let you know that there will not be a third season. Also, the second season is not scheduled to be released on DVD at this time. But, you can still purchase the first season on Amazon.com or rent it from Blockbuster or NetFlix. For those of you who got really caught up in the characters, there is a tie-in book for the series that digs deeper into their backgrounds and relationships. It is entitled “Zane’s Sex Chronicles,” exactly like the show."
