Netflix extends agreement to keep Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Parts Unknown’ on its service

As the world continues to reel from the tragic death of Anthony Bourdain, many fans have been revisiting his great work, from books to television. Now Netflix has announced it’ll still be easy for fans to do so on its streaming service.

The run of the chef’s CNN series, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, was to leave the streaming service on Saturday, June 16. But Netflix announced on Tuesday afternoon that they’ve reached an agreement to continuing offering the series for an indefinite amount of time.

Mashable has reached out to Netflix for additional details on the new deal.

The show ran for 96 episodes over 11 “seasons” beginning in 2013. CNN is airing the final episodes throughout the month of June. Bourdain was filming an episode of the show in France when he died.

Parts Unknown is an important part of Bourdain’s legacy because it represents what he did so well: using his fame and platform not just to expose viewers to different cultures through the lens of food, but to educate them as well, making the world just a little bit smaller.
