One more season of Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Parts Unknown’

September 10, 2018

Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” CNN food/travel show is coming back for a final season!


Bourdain was 61 when he took his own life back in June 2018. He was in Strasbourg, France, working on an episode of Parts Unknown.

We now know that a seven-episode 12th season will debut on September 23.

“Each one will feel slightly different depending on what’s gathered in the field,” CNN’s Amy Entelis told the L.A. Times. “They will have the full presence of Tony because you’ll see him, you’ll hear him, you’ll watch him. “That layer of his narration will be missing, but it will be replaced by other voices of people who are in the episodes.”


Meanwhile, Bourdain and team won 6 awards for their work on “Parts Unknown” at last night’s (Sept 9) Creative Arts Emmys. They won picture editing for a non-fiction program, sound editing for a non-fiction program, sound mixing for a non-fiction program, best informational series or special, and writing for a non-fiction program.

Is Bourdain missed? You damn right he is.
