Antony Bourdain was posthumously honoured at the Creative Emmys last night, winning awards for writing and Outstanding Informational Series.
According to Variety, another executive producer of Parts Unknown, Lydia Tenaglia, accepted the writing award on behalf of Bourdain and said: “He’s off on a journey to parts unknown. We wish we could be there to shoot that journey with him. I think he would have written the hell out of that episode.”
During a photo call, the cast and crew of Parts Unknown left an empty chair for Bourdain, on which they placed his award.
CNN has announced that Parts Unknown will return for a final season, which will include two specials on Bourdain's life and his work on the show.
