A Final Tribute

CNN made the decision to air the final episodes of Parts Unknown to pay tribute to Bourdain’s life and work. In a new trailer, the host is seen exploring Kenya with comedian and fellow CNN personality W. Kamau Bell. “Everybody who had dreams of traveling with Tony, it’s exactly as cool as you think it is,” Bell claimed in the clip.

The episodes began airing on September 23. In addition to Kenya, Bourdain ventured to unknown areas in Spain, Indonesia, West Texas, and Manhattan’s Lower East Side. His trips have always highlighted cultures and cuisines from unknown areas in well-known countries or cities, which had a great impact on viewers. For Bell, watching his experience with Bourdain is both exciting and hard. “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,” he admitted.

Saying Goodbye

To the shock of family, friends, and fans all over the world, Bourdain took his own life on June 8, 2018. At the time, he was working on an episode of Parts Unknown in Strasbourg, France. According to a few people close to the chef, he was battling depression.

The same day of his passing, CNN paid tribute to the star host with a special program, Remembering Anthony Bourdain. The network also decided to air the final episodes of Parts Unknown that Bourdain shot before he died, choosing to honor his life. “Travel can lift you up, and it can break your heart,” a narrator says in another trailer for the show over the visuals of some of Bourdain’s final days. “When the journey leaves its mark, it takes something with you and you leave something good behind.”

A Bittersweet Moment

Bourdain surely did leave something good behind with his show. In fact, Parts Unknown took home multiple awards at the 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards. It was a bittersweet moment for the crew who worked so closely with him. However, crew members were proud to accept the awards on his behalf.
