Even though celebrity chef and world traveler Anthony Bourdain died in June, he will be making a return to television. CNN is putting together a final season of Bourdain’s series “Parts Unknown,” which will air this fall, The Los Angeles Times reports.
The 12th season will reportedly consist of seven episodes. A premiere date has not yet been set.
“Only one episode — a trip to Kenya with W. Kamau Bell, the host of CNN’s ‘United Shades of America’ — was completed before Bourdain’s death,” The Times reports. “It will be the last to have Bourdain’s written narration, which gives the series its personal tone.”
The 12th season was in production when Bourdain committed suicide in early June while he was in France to work on the show.
The Times reports that the series’ directors will complete the unfinished episodes, which will feature visits to Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the Big Ben area of Texas, the U.S.-Mexico border, Indonesia and the Asturias region of Spain.
