You have a little over three weeks to finish eight seasons of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. The CNN series, which extended its availability on Netflix after its host’s death, is leaving the streaming service by the end of the month.
The eight seasons of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown available on Netflix will leave the streaming platform starting October 1, Eater reports. Previously, the show was set to leave Netflix June 16, just days after Bourdain’s death, but the company assured fans it would extend the agreement to stream the show “for months to come.”
But that’s not the last time you’ll be able to catch the series. The 12th and final season of Parts Unknown is set to premiere on CNN September 23, the network announced Thursday. The season was in production in France when Bourdain died on June 8.
The first episode, a trip to Kenya with W. Kamau Bell, is the only one that will feature Bourdain’s narration. Other episodes include traveling to Asturias, Spain with Jose Andres; a visit to the Lower East Side with Debbie Harry, Fab 5 Freddy, and more iconic New York figures; and visits to West Texas and Indonesia. There are also two specials in the season, one focused on Bourdain and the other on his relationship with his crew.
CNN is also working on a separate documentary about Bourdain, which is set to hit theaters as early as next year. That film will premiere at film festivals, then play at movie theaters, and then air on CNN. You can also check out excerpts from Parts Unknown at a new site, explorepartsunknown.com.
