After entertaining all of us with crazy stunts, huge explosions and sometime downright gross experiments, the popular MythBusters show on the Discovery channel is coming to an end. The 14th and final season of MythBusters will premiere on the Discovery Channel on January 9, 2016.
The crazy duo, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, alongside their myth busting team have racked up 2,950 experiments in 248 episodes to date. According to interviews with the two Mythbusters stars they knew that the end of the line was coming for a while now, and have set out to send the show off on a high note, with the pair determined to “find the most awesome example of each category and build on our past history.”
Adam also stated that the show will “pay homage to this thing that’s changed our lives,” and that the “finale will go out with a bang, as everyone would expect.” So what’s next for the ever present MythBusters pair? Jamie Hyneman teased that the execs from CBS is working on a new scripted show and it will supposedly “knock some people’s socks off.”
To celebrate Discovery’s longest running show, the channel will be airing a huge marathon of every MythBusters episode from December 23, 2015.
