Watch The Emotional Trailer For Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Parts Unknown’ Final Season
Anthony Bourdain died in June while filming the 12th season of Parts Unknown and the episodes that were completed before his death will air later this month. The emotional trailer was released and for fans of the celebrity chef this will be a heartbreaking watch.
The renowned chef, best-selling author, and beloved TV host only fully completed one episode of the final season of Parts Unknown. The one finished episode complete with narration by Bourdain was the journey to Kenya with comedian and fellow CNN TV host W. Kamau Bell.
“I really felt like a passenger just wanting to be present for it,” Bell says in the clip. “And I didn’t want to suck—that was my overwhelming feeling, like, ‘Don’t screw up his show.’ Everybody who had dreams of traveling with Tony, it’s exactly as cool as you think it is.”
“The greater context of the show and the reality and the fact that Tony’s gone makes that like a — it’s like a punch in the gut,” Bell added as he fights backs tears during the video.
There are six episodes total for Season 12 including Spain, Indonesia, West Texas, and Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The other uncompleted episodes will feature staff and friends remembering Bourdain.
Bourdain died on June 8, 2018, where he was found dead from an apparent suicide by hanging himself at Le Chambard hotel in Kaysersberg, France. The 61-year-old culinary personality was filming an episode in nearby Strasbourg and his body was discovered in the hotel room by his friend and fellow chef Eric Ripert.
Last week, Bourdain and the Parts Unknown staff won six Emmys for the previous season of the travel TV show.
The final season of Bourdain’s Parts Unknown will begin on September 23 at 9 pm ET.
