The myth that Adam Savage would never return to MythBusters has officially been … well, you get it. The Discovery science franchise will spawn yet another spinoff, as Savage returns to guide a new generation of science-minded kids to bust their own myths.
One of the last decade’s defining reality dramas is gearing up to return. American Chopper will bring the Teutuls back to the limelight, as Discovery is officially picking up the fan-favorite motorcycle family for a winter return.
True crime remains in vogue, and there may be no subject more topical than domestic terrorism. Discovery’s new miniseries Manhunt: Unabomber will bring us both, as Avengers star Paul Bettany plays the infamous bomber in a first trailer.
We don’t often look to Discovery for hard-hitting prestige drama, but their new Unabomber limited series Manifesto is certainly turning heads. Not only is Paul Bettany set to play the infamous bomber in a Kevin Spacey produced series, but so too has Sam Worthington signed on for a leading role.
It could be awhile yet (if ever) before Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman take on the MythBusters title again, but at least ten new science-minded personalities are waiting in the wings for the Science Channel’s new competition to replace them. See for yourself in the first trailer, as MythBusters: The Search farms the next generation.
MythBusters’ 14-year run has barely had enough time to pack up its equipment, and already new faces might pick up the mantle from Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. The Discovery-owned Science Channel has in mind to revive the famous pop-culture science phenomenon, launching a Search for the Next MythBusters reality competition to find new hosts.
