Netflix on Tuesday announced that Anthony Bourdain's CNN travel show "Parts Unknown" will remain on the streaming video service for "months to come."


"Some fans have noticed that Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown was scheduled to come off Netflix US on June 16," Netflix said in a statement on Twitter. "As of today, we’ve extended our agreement that will keep Parts Unknown on the service for months to come." 

Bourdain, 61, was found dead in his hotel room in France last week. As tributes poured in after his death, fans of the show took to social media to urge Netflix to keep the show available.

"It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain," CNN said in a statement shortly after his death was confirmed. "His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller."

Bourdain's show brought praise for its unique showcase of food and culture. The show, which was on its 11th season, won multiple Emmys since it began in 2013.
