This is no tall tale: Discovery has cancelled Mythbusters.
The venerable reality series will come to an end in 2016, at the conclusion of its 14th season.
“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 confirmed in a statement.
Per EW.com, which broke the news, Savage and Hyneman have been planning for the end since earlier this year. “It was my greatest fear that Mythbusters would just stop and we wouldn’t be able to do proper final episodes,” he tells the site. “So whether it’s myths about human behavior or car stories or explosion stories, we tried to find the most awesome example of each category and build on our past history.”
Mythbusters‘ farewell season bows Jan. 9, 2016.
