GLOBE-trotting celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain tragically took his own life in June — but he’ll live on in new footage from his show, Parts Unknown.

Prior to his suicide in France on June 8 at age 61, Bourdain was filming the 12th season of the CNN series, which followed his explorations of various cultures and cuisines.

The final season will reportedly feature episodes filmed on the Lower East Side, the US-Mexico border, Indonesia and Spain.

Aside from an episode in Kenya, the show won’t be accompanied by his usual narration, which he hadn’t recorded before his death. But the final two episodes will feature interviews with the crew about making the show and Bourdain’s impact on the world.

“Each [episode] will feel slightly different depending on what’s gathered in the field,” Amy Entelis, executive vice president of talent and content at CNN, told the LA Times.

“They will have the full presence of Tony because you’ll see him, you’ll hear him, you’ll watch him. That layer of his narration will be missing, but it will be replaced by other voices of people who are in the episodes.”

The final season does not yet have a release date, but it will air on CNN later this year.
