Myth confirmed: Mythbusters announces final season

It’s the end of an era. After over 25,000 hours of filming, 2,950 experiments, 1,050 myths, 248 episodes, and 13 years of airing on television, hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman announced that the upcoming 14th season of the show will be its last.

One of the longest-running shows on cable TV, Mythbusters premiered in 2003 on the Discovery Channel. Its quirky presentation and use of the scientific method to test and challenge rumors, myths, and widely-held beliefs quickly turned it into a pop culture phenomenon.

In a recent interview with EW, Adam Savage said, “The Internet and social media radically changed the way we made this show as we made it.

We’re now getting second generation compliments from Ph.D. graduates who say they got into science because of Mythbusters and now they’re raising their kids on Mythbusters.

Pretty much everything that’s happened on Mythbusters has exceeded our expectations. Our finale will go out with a bang, as everyone would expect.”

In the same interview, Jamie Hynman added, “The kind of appreciation that’s been expressed by people all over the place for what we’ve done, for encouraging them or their family or kids to be interested in science, is absolutely wonderful.

Science is a deeply creative enterprise. The public doesn’t often associate science with being deeply creative.

We have pointed out how fun and creative and thought-provoking science and experimentation can be.”

Cheers to one of the few, truly influential shows on TV. You inspired an entire generation to think critically and be interested in science. We will definitely #MythYouGuys!
