Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown Extended on Netflix

After Anthony Bourdain’s tragic death by suicide at the age of 61, many admirers of the author, chef and TV host flocked to Netflix in search of Bourdain’s beloved docuseries Parts Unknown, only to find that the Emmy-winning CNN show was set to be removed from the streaming service on June 16. Fortunately, Netflix has extended Parts Unknown, announcing Tuesday that it will remain on the service “for months to come.”

In the days following Bourdain’s death on June 8, fans launched a petition imploring Netflix to extend the show’s streaming tenure, collecting over 6,400 signatures. “Netflix, this show isn’t just entertaining. It is heartwarming, it is honest and it benefits human kind,” the petition reads. “Please keep it on the air.”

Parts Unknown’s 11th season is currently airing on CNN, while the show’s first eight seasons are streaming on Netflix. The show has won five Emmy awards since its 2013 debut. You can travel the world with Bourdain via Netflix here.
