Netflix to continue streaming Bourdain's 'Parts Unknown' after fan outcry

On Tuesday Netflix tweeted it had extended a licensing agreement that allows "Parts Unknown" to keep airing in the U.S.

After the popular chef and TV host died at 61 last Friday, both the Travel Channel and CNN offered tributes by revisiting Bourdain's programs, "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" and "Parts Unknown". The first eight seasons of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, are streaming on Netflix.

Fans began lobbying Netflix online to continue streaming "Parts Unknown" beyond June 16, which had been the announced date of it ending.

"Parts Unknown" is now airing its 11th season on CNN, with the show's first eight seasons available on Netflix. In his final season, Anthony Bourdain traversed West Virginia, Uruguay, Newfoundland, Armenia, and Hong Kong, among other locations.




His body was found by his close friend and fellow chef Eric Ripert. His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly hard time".

In an effort to keep the show on Netflix, Tanner Palin started a petition that attracted over 6,000 signature.

We're grateful that we are going to get a chance to see more of Parts Unknown, at least so that Bourdain's legacy can be celebrated in the way in which it should be. "Netflix, this show isn't just entertaining".
