MAMOU - The final episodes of Anthony Bourdain's 'Parts Unknown' series will include an exploration of Louisiana's most unique Mardi Gras celebrations.

Only two episodes remain in the popular travel series hosted by the late celebrity chef. The second-to-last episode, titled 'Cajun Mardi Gras', takes a deep dive into the culture of some of the states more unique Carnival traditions.

"In this celebration of Louisiana's Cajun culture, complete with Zydeco music and a crawfish boil, Bourdain goes off the beaten path and takes part in Mardi Gras traditions of the region's history stemming from the French Middle Ages..." the show description reads.

The hour-long episode will feature Bourdain's visit to Mamou during the 2018 Mardi Gras season. Mamou is famous for its unorthodox Mardi Gras traditions, which include activities like chasing chickens and horseback riding.

Bourdain was found dead earlier this month from an apparent suicide. His televised travels brought him all over the world and led to meetings with numerous celebrities and political figures, including President Barack Obama.

The 'Cajun Marid Gras' episode will air Sunday at 8 p.m. CT on CNN. The episode will be preceded by the 'Remembering Anthony Bourdain' special at 7.
