Following Bourdain’s death by suicide on June 8, fans had been petitioning Netflix to keep the series on the platform.
Bourdain was in France and filming an episode for the hit food and culture show when he died.
He was 61 years old.
Over 6,500 users signed the Change.org petition to keep the show on Netflix:
“If his legacy is anything, it is that the human condition afflicts us all, that life is beautiful but fragile, that there is not much better than a long story over a hot bowl of noodles, and that kindness, connection, and a little understanding can make our world just a little bit better,” the petition reads. “Netflix, this show isn't just entertaining. It is heartwarming, it is honest and it benefits human kind. Please keep it on the air.”
“Parts Unknown” is airing its 11th season on CNN.
The show’s first eight seasons are available on Netflix.
Anthony Bourdain, an American chef, author, and television personality who hosted “Parts Unknown,” was found dead in his hotel room, CNN reported Friday. He was 61.
Bourdain was found in his hotel room in Strasbourg, France, CNN reported.
The Emmy-winning host committed suicide, CNN confirmed.
"It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain," CNN said in a statement Friday morning. "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."
Bourdain was in France to work on an upcoming episode of “Parts Unknown,” an award-winning series on CNN. His friend, French chef Eric Ripert, found Bourdain unresponsive in his hotel room, CNN reported.
The eleventh season of "Parts Unknown" premiered on CNN last month.
Bourdain won a Peabody Award in 2013 for “expanding our palates and horizons in equal measure," CNN reported.
“I want to extend my heartfelt condolences to his family,” President Donald Trump said as he prepared to attend the G7 summit in Canada. “I enjoyed his show. He was a character.”
Bourdain's death occurred three days after fashion designer Kate Spade hanged herself at her Manhattan apartment on Tuesday.

Antony Bourdain was known as a chef and television host who didn’t pull punches. He spoke his mind, unfiltered, no matter the subject or who he would anger.
He was a best-selling author and a television personality.

A look back at the life of the world-renowned chef, author and TV host, according to Biography.com:
Bourdain admitted a past addiction to drugs and alcohol. In his book, “Kitchen Confidential” he outlined his battles with drugs including LSD, cocaine and heroin. He said he sold his record collection to buy drugs, Fox News reported.

CNN food critic and world traveler Anthony Bourdain had never eaten at a Waffle House.
CNN’s “Parts Unknown” host made a career out of visiting some of the world’s most eccentric locales and eating whatever the local populace will put on a plate, stick or shingle.
The best? Could it be a pecan waffle from Waffle House?
Bourdain visited a South Carolina Waffle House back in 2015 with southern chef Sean Brock, who said he has visited the roadside eatery since he was a young because he enjoys watching food being prepared.
Brock, from Charleston, apparently has the two-sided menu implanted in his DNA and instructs the man who has tasted everything to get a pecan waffle. He then shows him how to slather a butter-like substance into every waffle grid and soak it in syrup.
Bourdain’s review? He says Waffle House is “indeed marvelous” but seems as captivated by the late-night lunacy as the food.
In the opening of the video, the famous chef (and imbiber of adult beverages) offers up high praise, calling the familiar diner a “yellow beacon of hope” for the “seriously hammered.”
Customers of all races, creeds and “degrees of inebriation” seem welcome, he says. “It never closes” and “is always there for you.”
Waffle House not only has delicious grub, but it’s a “place of safety and nourishment” for all, says Bourdain, who may have been consuming something fermented other than Icelandic shark while putting this piece together.
“That’s good,” exclaims Bourdain as he stuffs some waffle in his face.
Brock, in referencing a famous French restaurant in California, says “You don’t come here expecting The French Laundry” … “you expect something amazing.”
“This is better than The French Laundry,” says Bourdain, who may have trouble getting a reservation the next time he is in Napa.
But, with 2,100 Waffle Houses in the U.S., he probably won’t go hungry.
Asia Argento, an Italian actress, filmmaker and activist, said she is “beyond devastated” by the news of the death of her boyfriend, Anthony Bourdain.
Bourdain, an American chef, author and television personality who hosted “Parts Unknown,” was found dead in his hotel room in France, CNN reported Friday. He was 61.
In a statement posted to Twitter, Argento remembered Bourdain as brilliant, fearless and generous.
“Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did,” the actress wrote. “His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds. He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated. My thoughts are with his family. I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine.”
Who is Asia Argento?
Argento is an actress, filmmaker, director, author and activist.
Argento was born Sept. 20, 1975, in Rome, Italy. Her full name is Asia Aria Maria Vittoria Rossa Argento.
Argento is the daughter of Dario Argento and Daria Nicolodi. Her father, Dario, was an actor, writer, producer and director, and her mother, Daria, was a stage actress and writer.
Argento has appeared in dozens of films, including “Land of the Dead,” “B. Monkey,” “Marie Antoinette” and “xXx.” She directed many films, including “Scarlet Diva” and “The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things,” both of which she also wrote and starred in.
Argento and Bourdain publicly announced their romantic relationship in 2017. Bourdain told PEOPLE in 2017 that Argento was “enormously helpful and inspiring.” Argento influenced Bourdain’s CNN show, “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” by appearing in one episode about Rome and directing an episode about Hong Kong.
Argento is part of the #MeToo movement and accused film producer Harvey Weinstein of rape. She spoke out last October in The New Yorker. In an op-ed published in April titled “I refuse to be silenced,” Argento wrote that “The balance of power tipped, at last, in favor of the survivors who have been given a voice and platform to speak their truths to the world.”
The United States experienced a nearly 30 percent increase in suicide rates between 1999-2016, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released two days after the death of designer Kate Spade. Her death was ruled a suicide.
According to the recently published figures, 54 percent of reported suicide deaths since 1999 could not be traced back to mental health diagnoses. Circumstances involving relationships, substance abuse, job or financial troubles, health issues and access to lethal means, such as firearms, significantly contributed to the dramatic rise, the CDC reported.
Still, experts note that previous research has shown higher rates of mental health disorders among those at high risk of suicide.
“The reason most suicide decedents don’t have a known mental disorder is that they were never diagnosed, not that they didn’t have one,” Dr. David Brent, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh, told the New York Times.
