Mythbusters have graced our TV’s for years and have shown thousands of experiments. The hosts, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, have spent hours on screen taking tales and myths to the workshop, hoping to prove or disprove a myth by finding the facts (or lack of) within the tales, but sadly that is all to end next year with the final season starting in January.
Discovery has confirmed that the popular fact-checking show has been cancelled and will stop after the 14th season next year. Stating “248 episodes, 2950 experiments and 900 explosions”, you won’t be left shy on experiments to watch before it leaves our screens.
The hosts were not surprised by this news, and in fact state they had been preparing for this news. Savage stated, “It was my greatest fear that Mythbusters would just stop and we wouldn’t be able to do proper final episodes”, even going on to say he has mixed feelings about the end of Mythbusters, something that he and Hyneman have hosted since the very beginning.
Not to shy away from the last season Hyneman stated that the 14th season will be anything but dull and how they are proud to consider it a ‘strong point’, he explained this by saying “We’ve tried to go as deeply as possible into the things we’re doing, and gave them the respect and care they deserve”.
With so many explosions and experiments under their belt, the show will be missed. Are you a fan of Mythbusters and if so, what was your favourite experiment?
