Bourdain’s cause of death was suicide by hanging, French authorities confirmed in June.
Following Bourdain’s death last month, CNN released the following statement:
“It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain. His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink, and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.”
Last month, Netflix extended a deal to keep “Parts Unknown” on its service for the foreseeable future, after fans petitioned the service to renew its agreement for the CNN series following Bourdain’s death.
