Anthony Bourdain was cremated in France on Wednesday, with his ashes to be sent to the US on Friday, a week after the beloved chef was found hanged, People reports, citing a source. A CNN rep confirms Bourdain has been cremated, per E! News. Bourdain had been in France filming for his CNN show Parts Unknown. CNN's Brian Stelter says Bourdain's two final unaired episodes will run as scheduled this Sunday, following a tribute, and on June 24. Previous seasons of Parts Unknown, which had been scheduled to disappear from Netflix on Saturday, will now remain on the streaming service "for months to come," Netflix says.
