Discovery Channel’s longest-running series "Mythbusters" is coming to an end, with its final season to premiere January 9.
After 248 episodes, 2950 experiments, 1050 myths, and 900 explosions, hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman will say goodbye to the series this winter, Discovery Channel said in a statement. The seven-time Emmy-nominated series premiered on Discovery in January 2003.
Discovery is not closing the door on a future "Mythbusters" revival but for now, the show is over. Savage and Hyneman are making a transition to scripted TV with a spy drama project in development at CBS, which is based on their personal experience and which the duo executive produces.
From rocket cars to duct tape myths, "Breaking Bad" myths to Breaking Glass myths, Savage and Hyneman have done it all. Seth Rogen, James Cameron, Aaron Paul, Vince Gilligan, Sophia Bush and many more have stopped by to test out their myth busting skills. The duo even caught the eye of the President of the United States and welcomed President Obama as a guest star back in 2010.
“The 'Mythbusters' library will be moving over to Discovery's sister network in 2016, where I know audiences new and old alike will be able to experience and learn with Adam and Jamie and the rest of the 'Mythbusters' family," said Rich Ross, Group President, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and Science Channel
