CNN To Air Last Completed Parts Unknown Episodes This Month

Posted by at 7:00 pm on June 14, 2018

CNN will air all of its remaining episodes of Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” and complete the show’s eleventh season. The fate of the completed segments was thrown into question last week following the death of the show’s star. The news was first reported by CNN in the newsletter of the network’s media reporter Brian Stelter.

“CNN is airing the eleventh season of Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Parts Unknown,’” wrote Stelter late Wednesday evening. “A CNN spokeswoman says the final two episodes of the season will also air as scheduled, this Sunday and next Sunday at 9 p.m. ET. The ‘Remembering Anthony Bourdain’ tribute will re-air this Sunday at 8.”

The network went ahead with its regularly scheduled edition of “Parts Unknown” two days after Bourdain’s death, which included a special introduction by network anchor Anderson Cooper. That came in addition to days of tributes and commemorations.

Last week, the 61-year-old chef was found dead in a hotel room in Paris while on site filming another episode of “Parts Unknown.” In his years hosting the program for CNN, Bourdain had become one of the more beloved figures on the channel, even among frequent critics of the network. He was also a New York Times best-selling author.

CNN’s longterm plans for the show still remain unclear.
