Here are more details about the upcoming season of Anthony Bourdain's CNN show Parts Unknown. The sixth season will premiere September 27 and as in seasons past, it will have eight episodes. According to a press release, the show will follow Bourdain and his crew as they travel to Marseille, Cuba, Okinawa, Ethiopia, California's Bay Area, Borneo, Istanbul, and Charleston, S.C.

The premiere episode takes place in Cuba shortly after the half-century U.S. embargo against the country was lifted. There, Bourdain will eat dishes like dogfish ceviche, flan in a beer can, and pig's head soup. Chef Eric Ripert (Le Bernardin, NYC) will join Bourdain in Marseille, France where the two friends will eat Algerian couscous and "as much salumi and Corsican cheese as they can handle." After that Bourdain will knock back bowls of Yakisoba in Okinawa, Japan before heading to Ethiopia with chef Marcus Samuelsson (Red Rooster, NYC) and his wife Maya to feast on injera bread, hang with skateboarding pioneers, and drink a whole lot of coffee.

In the Bay Area, Bourdain will eat soul food with a founding member of the Black Panthers before heading off to Borneo to down plates of chicken rendang and plenty of pork noodles. Then in Turkey, Bourdain will stop by an oil wrestling tournament and an Armenian restaurant, before jetting off to Charleston for the season finale. In South Carolina, Bourdain will sample everything from oyster pie to shrimp and grits while hanging out with chef Sean Brock (Husk) and actor Bill Murray. Watch a trailer for the season below:
