Sadly This Is Not A Myth — Mythbusters Is Being Canceled! Get The Deets On The Show's Final Season!

Filed under: TV NewsDiscovery

It'll truly be the end of an era.

Don't bother trying to bust this myth, Perezcious readers, because unfortunately it's true.

On Wednesday, news broke that Mythbusters is going to be canceled. The reality series will come to an end following its 14th season, set to air next year.

The popular program — famous for debunking high-profile myths or widespread urban legends — was one of cable television's longest-running shows and will go out after 248 episodes and 2,950 experiments.

While this may come as a shock to viewers, the show's stars Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman had actually known the news for a while now.

In fact, Adam admits he was nervous that the Discovery series would end without any actual warning, saying:

"The thing that really makes me happy is most cable shows like ours just end. They get past their freshness date, you finish a season and then you hear you'll never see another one. I truly thought that's the way Mythbusters would end."

But, because they received plenty of notice, the 48-year-old explains they've been taking the time to conclude the program properly, and go out with a bang, adding:

"It was my greatest fear that Mythbusters would just stop and we wouldn't be able to do proper final episodes. 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."

Jamie revealed that, while he was sometimes frustrated with the minor manipulation that goes along with producing any reality show, he was grateful for the way in which the TV show inspired people to express an interest in science, saying:

"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. I can't think of anything that would be more important than that."

Although we're sad to see Mythbusters go, we're sure the final episodes will be epic!

ICYMI: Would Walter White's Nazi-Killing Robot From The Breaking Bad Finale Actually Work? The Mythbusters Built It FOR REAL!

Filed under: TV NewsTech TalkScience!GIFs

Will this Breaking Bad myth be busted??

There's no question that Hollywood tends to stretch the truth from time to time, but that's never stopped the Mythbusters from putting these stunts to the test!

In a recent episode, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman took on a handful of Breaking Bad-inspired myths, and ended on a literal bang when they built their very own machine gun wielding robot!

Just like the one Walter White used to [SPOILER ALERT] save Jesse Pinkman in the finale!

The rules were pretty simple: 1. It had to be built using household items Walt would have access to. 2. It had to operate remotely. 3. It had to fire THROUGH the car trunk and the wall the Nazis were standing behind!

And they were smart enough to have the show's creator Vince Gilligan on hand to make sure everything went smoothly!

So did it work?? Ch-ch-check out the video (below) and find out!

Mythbusters Experiment Gone Wrong Sends Cannonball Through TWO Different Homes!

Filed under: Oops!Wacky, Tacky & TrueReality TV

We're going to have to side with the news anchor on this one:


Check out this news report from Dublin, CA, regarding an experiment for the reality series Mythbusters that went awry - and sent a cannonball THROUGH TWO DIFFERENT HOMES and ultimately into someone's mini-van (above)!

Apparently, hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage were attempting to find out how effective a cannon is at firing various objects, but were testing a cannonball beforehand, as a reference point.

Obviously, they didn't get further than step one!

Ah! Can U even imagine?!

Thank goodness no one was hurt!
