The new season of CNN’s “Parts Unknown” looks to be more of the same, which basically means you don’t want to miss a second of it.

Anthony Bourdain, in a new teaser for the season’s first episode (h/t Eater) hints at some debauchery within the confines of South Korea.

The chef, author and TV host is back to devour all the good, delicious bits this world has to offer.

In the following snippet, we get the Bourdain quip: “Walk in and eat delicious food and get hammered? Being Korean is pretty awesome.”

We can presume this to be true, but it’s always more entertaining to follow along with Bourdain, which is exactly what we will do on April 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT when the episode premieres on CNN.

Now what makes this show so much better than most traveling series is the deep immersion audiences get with Bourdain’s inner thoughts.

As this following teaser illustrates, the 58-year-old has been on a wild journey since publishing his restaurant tell-all “Kitchen Confidential.”

Thankfully, we have been allowed a seat for the journey:

If you are wondering which other locations we will see this season, CNN helps us out: “The eight-episode season also features trips to Miami, Scotland, Madagascar, New Jersey, Budapest, Hawaii and Beirut.”

In 2015 Bourdain will conquer the road as well as the New York marketplace. His official website gives a bit more information on the upcoming Close to the Bone live tour, which will include stops in Nashville, Houston, Austin and Chicago.

And if that weren’t exhausting enough, work continues to bring New York City a food central market befitting a man of these otherworldly appetites.

The Business Times reported earlier this month on Bourdain Market, which “won't be so much a mega food court but a United Nations of food with the co-operation of different countries keen to showcase their culture through food.”

Eater New York reports that details are still murky on what will be a large and “chaotic” space for vendors and foodies. But it does promise more information “will be announced in just a few weeks.”

Bourdain mentions that his crazy adventure into the celebrity world started at 44. From there he has taken us all across the globe, showing us new culinary delights and introducing us to new people.

Through it all he has filled his shows with humor and delicious insight. We look forward to more amazing from this wonderful world traveler.
