Bourdain lovers, rejoice: Season nine of “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” is set to air beginning on April 30, with new episodes coming each Sunday at 9 p.m. EST.
Of course, this is far from the globetrotting chef’s first rodeo; the new season marks his ninth trip eating ‘round the world for CNN. If you’re interested in reliving some of his past adventures, you’re in luck: CNN’s airing a “Prime Cuts” special on April 23 in which Bourdain—along with producer Chris Collins, off-camera—will discuss his favorite moments from season eight. Collins and Bourdain will also offer a glimpse into what we can expect from season nine.
