"I really felt like a passenger and just wanted to be present for it," Bell says in the trailer. "Everybody who had dreams of traveling with Tony—it's exactly as cool as you think it is."
Bell joins Bourdain for an adventure through the "technicolor" of Nairobi, for a safari and more unforgettable experiences that the comedian won't take for granted.
"I feel a tremendous responsibility to learn the lesson that I learned when I was with him, to deepen the work that I'm doing, and to prove him right to want me to be on an episode of Parts Unknown," Bell reflects.
The 12th and final six-episode season of Parts Unknown premieres on Sunday, September 23. The show is up for four Emmys, with Bourdain winning a posthumous award for Outstanding Writing for a Nonfiction Program.
