Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman dropped a bomb during Thursday night’s episode of the hit Discovery channel show. Unlike most episodes of the show, this wasn’t a bomb meant to teach us all something about science. This was a bomb that has some fans up in arms. Adam and Jaime announced in the final minutes of the show, that their co-stars Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara would no longer be involved with the show when it returns with new episodes.
The three departing cast members used Twitter to thank their fans and co-workers when the announcement was made on-air…
Thanks @MythBusters for allowing us to teach science in a whole new way. Also, explosions. Now, on to the next adventure!

After a decade of the Mythbusters, we are no longer with the show. Thank you to all the fans who have supported us.

You guys are so sweet. Thank you for all your tweets, but this means new beginnings…I promise.

Adam and Jaime will return as the sole hosts of the show when new episodes air. They claimed this was “going back to our origins”. However, Kari Byron made her first appearance in episode two, all the way back in 2003! They used a mold of her butt to test whether an airplane toilet could create a vacuum seal and I have been watching ever since. I will definitely miss these three and the roles they played on the show. Even to the extent of second guessing whether to continue watching or not. How about you?
