Over 6,500 users signed the Change.org petition to keep the show on Netflix:

“If his legacy is anything, it is that the human condition afflicts us all, that life is beautiful but fragile, that there is not much better than a long story over a hot bowl of noodles, and that kindness, connection, and a little understanding can make our world just a little bit better,” the petition reads. “Netflix, this show isn't just entertaining. It is heartwarming, it is honest and it benefits human kind. Please keep it on the air.”

“Parts Unknown” is airing its 11th season on CNN.

The show’s first eight seasons are available on Netflix.
