A final season of Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown is set to air this fall. CNN says it will air seven episodes in the 12th season of the series, reports the Los Angeles Times. A single episode completed before Bourdain's June 8 suicide in France finds him exploring Kenya alongside comedian W. Kamau Bell. Four other episodes will show footage of Bourdain's trips to Manhattan, Texas, Spain, and Indonesia, with his usual narration "replaced by other voices of people who are in the episodes," a CNN rep explains. They're to be followed by an episode offering a behind-the-scenes look at filming, and another paying tribute to Bourdain. Per Eater, the exact premiere date is not yet known.
