CNN will produce one more season of the late Anthony Bourdain’s food and travel show, Parts Unknown, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday. Bourdain died June 8, and CNN Executive Vice President Amy Entelis told the Times his death still feels unreal. “Sometimes a thought runs through your head thinking that maybe it’s a dream,” she said. Only one unseen episode, set in Kenya with W. Kamau Bell, the host of CNN’s United Shades of America, has been finished. Four others, set in New York, Texas, Spain and Indonesia will be completed using audio of Bourdain recorded on location, with follow-up interviews added. Those episodes will lack the chef and host’s signature narration. “That layer of his narration will be missing, but it will be replaced by other voices of people who are in the episodes,” Entelis said. Two more episodes will focus on the making of the show and on Bourdain’s influence, drawing on outtakes and archival footage. No date was officially announced for the return of Parts Unknown. CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
