The network has enough material to move ahead with one final season as a tribute to Anthony Bourdain, who died at the age of 61 on June 8.

CNN decided to carry on with the 12th season of the Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown despite the fact that only one episode, which features a trip to Kenya with CNN host W. Kamau Bell, was completed before Bourdain’s death. The rest of the episodes, featuring trips to Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the Big Bend area of Texas, and the Asturias region of Spain and Indonesia, will be created by the show directors from Bourdain’s production company, according to the CNN executive Amy Entelis, who launched Parts Unknown in 2013.
