CNN has announced that Anthony Bourdain will return with season three of Parts Unknown, starting April 13 at 9 p.m.
The cable news network is bullish on Bourdain, with rumors abounding that the celebrity chef is even on the short list of personalities to replace Piers Morgan, along with Rosie O'Donnell, Anderson Cooper, Rachel Maddow and Ann Curry.
Whether or not that happens, we've got another eight episodes of Bourdain's world experiences to look forward to, with the season premiere taking our intrepid eater to Punjab, India.
Subsequent episodes will feature a mashup of the near and far, with Bourdain visiting Lyon, France; Mexico City; the Mississippi Delta; Russia; Thailand; and Bahia, Brazil.
New for this year is an online flipboard magazine (including pictures by Ottavia Bourdain), and interactive live blogging during each episode on Twitter by using hashtag #PartsUnknown.
