CNN to Air Final Season of Anthony Bourdain's 'Parts Unknown'

Bittersweet news for fans of the late Anthony Bourdain: CNN is moving forward with a 12th and final season of his beloved culinary travelogue Parts Unknown.

The only finished episode features a trip to Kenya that Bourdain took with United Shades of America host W. Kamau Bell.

The final season will reportedly feature episodes filmed on the Lower East Side, the US-Mexico border, Indonesia and Spain.

Bourdain died June 8 at 61, and CNN Executive Vice President Amy Entelis told the Los Angeles Times his death still feels unreal. "They will have the full presence of Tony because you'll see him, you'll hear him, you'll watch him".

Prior to the Peabody Award-winning Parts Unknown, Bourdain hosted the Food Network's A Cook's Tour and the Travel Channel's No Reservations, for which he earned two Emmy awards.

The first episode will be the only one to use Bourdain's narration, a signature element of the series.

The announcement comes months after Bourdain was found dead in his hotel room in France, where he was filming an episode of his show. "That layer of his narration will be missing, but it will be replaced by other voices of people who are in the episodes". "She added that the penultimate episode will "[utilize] outtakes and behind-the-scenes footage", as well as cast and crew interviews, to discuss "how Tony affected the world". Per Eater, the exact premiere date is not yet known.
