I use fictfact.com to keep track of all the series I follow. I add a series and fictfact supplies all titles in the series so I just tick which I've already read. New publications are automatically added to my saved series so I don't miss any - and I can get email reminders for new publications if I want them.

It's a personal wishlist/buy next but without being pushed to buy 'similar' books the way the online ebook retailers do.

Depends on how it sells, I've seen "trilogies" stop at one.

Damn!!! I waited so long for the third book in the demon trilogy by Peter V Brett. It seems the series is no more a trilogy but minimum 5 books. Plus, the latest ebook "The daylight war" is £11.99 which is more than hardcover at £11.77.
Well, atleast I won't spend anything on this series.

Rant end!
