Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara Leaving 'MythBusters'

In what will no doubt come as a surprise to many 'MythBusters' fans, Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara are leaving the Discovery channel show.

Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman have announced that the trio will leave the show at the end of the Thursday, August 21 episode.

"After a decade of the MythBusters, we are no longer with the show," Byron said on Twitter. "Thank you to all the fans who have supported us. The show is taking a new direction."

"It was an amazing run. I learned so much about myself and the world. I love you all @MythBusters. I am sad for an ending but there will be exciting new adventures for us."

The message would seem to indicate that it's not Byron, Belleci and Imahara who wanted to leave the show but instead the move was initiated by Discovery.

But many fans are welcoming the news with the hopes it will take the series back to its roots. Adam and Jamie will once again be the sole hosts of the show and, according to our sources, 'MythBusters' will also focus more on the work and time in the workshop that goes into debunking the myth rather than the end result.

And although the episode will air this month, it was taped two years ago which means all three cast members have known for some time that they wouldn't return.
