As the world continues to reel from the tragic death of Anthony Bourdain, many fans have been revisiting his great work, from books to television. Now Netflix has announced it’ll still be easy for fans to do so on its streaming service.

The run of the chef’s CNN series, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, was to leave the streaming service on Saturday, June 16. But Netflix announced on Tuesday afternoon that they’ve reached an agreement to continuing offering the series for an indefinite amount of time.

Mashable has reached out to Netflix for additional details on the new deal.

The show ran for 96 episodes over 11 “seasons” beginning in 2013. CNN is airing the final episodes throughout the month of June. Bourdain was filming an episode of the show in France when he died.

Parts Unknown is an important part of Bourdain’s legacy because it represents what he did so well: using his fame and platform not just to expose viewers to different cultures through the lens of food, but to educate them as well, making the world just a little bit smaller.

Space Force is inspired by President Donald Trump in which he expressed interest in creating a new branch of the U.S. military called the Space Force. The show would focus on the people who have to make Trump’s dream come true.

Space Force will undoubtedly be steeped in political satire, given its premise, but just like The Office that came before it, Space Force is described as a workplace comedy. No word yet on whether there will be any budding romances between coworkers, or what exactly Carell’s role will be.

We do know that Carell is going to be making a pretty penny on this show according to a report from The Hollywood Report, which claims the star’s salary is record-setting and likely beating out the salary of the stars of The Big Bang Theory, each of whom were taking in $1 million per episode……………………………………………………….”
