Hey guys, guess what? As of this Saturday, MythBusters is back on Discovery for a whole new season of awesomeness! Excited? Of course you are. But, here’s the thing: a lot’s changed for the show since last we left the dynamic duo of San Francisco. In addition to the departure of co-hosts Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara, it was recently revealed that the series was going to be undergoing a slight format change in terms of look and style – most notability in the department that concerns the display of what Adam and Jamie actually do.
With days to go before the series premiere, the team has finally unveiled the updated look in a new video that also shows off brand new opening credits.
Yup, that’s what we’re looking for.
This does actually address something the series has always lacked: a way to get viewers interested in the nitty gritty of what the team builds from episode to episode and how they do it. By adding these on-screen pop-up facts, the production team has found a way to thoroughly explain much of the on-screen antics without cutting into the actual narrative of a given myth.
Mythbusters premieres this Saturday, January 10 at 9/8c on Discovery.
