It was nominated for an “Outstanding Children's Program” Emmy in 2005. Zoey101 was the most expensive production ever for a Nickelodeon series, as it was shot completely on location in Malibu, California.
Several soundtracks and video games based on the series have also been produced and released. The series officially ended production in August 2007 after the shooting of its final season, which began airing five months later in January 2008.
On September 18, 2015, the 10th anniversary of the airing of the season 2 episode Time Capsule “, Teen Nick aired a short clip featuring Chase and Michael. In the clip, it becomes apparent that Zoey and Chase have broken up, and he is now seeing someone else.
When Chase proposes to his current girlfriend Alyssa (Jamie Snow), Michael storms in and informs him of what Zoey said on her DVD from “Time Capsule”. The DVD reveals that Zoey suspected Chase's crush on her at the time, even before she went to England, and at some point even thought about getting together with him as she considered him her soulmate, but didn't act on it until after she went to England.
This causes Chase, who is still in love with Zoey, to abandon Alyssa to find Zoey, with the clip ending on a cliffhanger. After reuniting with many of her former cast mates on All That in late 2019, with the sketch later aired on July 2020, Spears revealed during a podcast in May 2020, that she was interested in developing a possible revival and that discussions had already been underway, but nothing was official at the time as many details of the potential project had yet to be confirmed.
On October 2020, the cast made a reunion on TikTok. Nickelodeon has released all 4 seasons on DVD in Region 1 (United States only).
