Netflix will continue to stream “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” after reaching a new agreement with CNN.
The series was set to expire from the online streaming service on June 16.
Following Bourdain’s death by suicide on June 8, fans had been petitioning Netflix to keep the series on the platform.
Bourdain was in France and filming an episode for the hit food and culture show when he died.
He was 61 years old.
Over 6,500 users signed the Change.org petition to keep the show on Netflix:
“If his legacy is anything, it is that the human condition afflicts us all, that life is beautiful but fragile, that there is not much better than a long story over a hot bowl of noodles, and that kindness, connection, and a little understanding can make our world just a little bit better,” the petition reads. “Netflix, this show isn't just entertaining. It is heartwarming, it is honest and it benefits human kind. Please keep it on the air.”
“Parts Unknown” is airing its 11th season on CNN.
The show’s first eight seasons are available on Netflix.
