'MythBusters' Cancelled After 14 Seasons and 2,950 Experiments

Discovery has announced that 'MythBusters' will end after its 2016 season.

The 14th and final season will kick off in January, and by the time it ends, 'MythBusters' will have performed 2,950 experiments, tested 1,050 myths, and conducted 900 explosions over 248 episodes.

Hosted by Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, the show debuted in January 2003.

"I never dreamed we would be on television at all, much less for such a long time and with so much praise for keeping a thought-provoking show on the air," Hyneman said. "And best of all, we were able to do what we do and still have all our fingers and toes."

The show is in the midst of filming its final episodes.

"Making MythBusters has fundamentally and irrevocably altered the way I think as a person, as an artist, and as a scientist," adds Savage. "I'm glad for the chance to say goodbye with some of the best television we've ever made. I will miss making this show."

The 'MythBusters' team tease they have "figured out the ultimate way to go out with a bang."
