It’s been four days since Anthony Bourdain’s death and the world is still reeling from the news. Many fans have been commemorating his life by binge-watching Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, Bourdain’s CNN show that showcased his love of travel, food, and connecting with communities.

Many lamented the fact that Parts Unknown was scheduled to leave Netflix on June 16, but at least there’s still some good news in the world: the streaming site extended its agreement with the show’s distributor, allowing them to keep it for several more months, at least.

“Some fans have noticed that Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown was scheduled to come off Netflix US on June 16,” the Netflix’s official US account tweeted. “As of today, we’ve extended our agreement that will keep Parts Unknown on the service for months to come.”

This announcement doesn’t particularly come as a surprise, considering the incredibly emotional, strong response to Bourdain’s death, as well as fans petitioning for Netflix to continue streaming the show. All in all, it was a win-win for everyone. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
