The myth that Adam Savage would never return to MythBusters has officially been … well, you get it. The Discovery science franchise will spawn yet another spinoff, as Savage returns to guide a new generation of science-minded kids to bust their own myths.
MythBusters’ 14-year run has barely had enough time to pack up its equipment, and already new faces might pick up the mantle from Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. The Discovery-owned Science Channel has in mind to revive the famous pop-culture science phenomenon, launching a Search for the Next MythBusters reality competition to find new hosts.
Over the years we've seen the 'Mythbusters' crew making a number of headlines for their many themed episodes and stunts, but the latest news may prove troubling for fans of the longtime Discovery Channel series. Not only are fan-favorite M7 Build Team members Kari Byron, Tory Belleci, and Grant Imahara not returning for the next season in 2015, but the show will undergo a reboot of sorts to take 'Mythbusters' in a "new direction."
