CNN has renewed “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” for a third season. The series follows Bourdain as he travels the world, discovering local cuisines and exploring geopolitics.
“We had high expectations for this series when it launched back in April,” CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker said in a statement. “Yet [Bourdain and Zero Point Zero Productions] keep raising the bar — first with the spectacular series premiere in Myanmar, later in the season with the groundbreaking Libya episode and then at the start of season two with a sensitive and incredibly informative tour of Jerusalem, Gaza and the West Bank.”
The series recently gave CNN its very first Primetime Emmy awards when it won earlier this month for Outstanding Informational Series and Outstanding Cinematography for a Nonfiction Series.
The second season of “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” is currently airing on CNN. The six-episode third season will air in spring 2014.
