Adam Savage Returns to the World of MYTHBUSTERS with MYTHBUSTERS JR.

From 2003-2016, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman helped us determine what we can and can’t do in the real world on their TV show MythBusters. And just when you thought they were out, they’re back–well, Adam Savage is. Only two short years after his tenure on MythBusters ended, Savage is returning to that world to mentor the world’s next great busters of myths.

Reported by SYFY, MythBusters Jr. will have Adam working with six young people who specialize in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) to try and figure out what’s what in the world during the ten episode season. In a statement, Savage said, “I’m so excited to be returning to Discovery to work with these kids on a new incarnation of the show I love so much. To be able to confront them with great questions and the resources to answer them is such a dream. Helping to inspire future scientists and engineers is a mission I share with Discovery.”

We think this is amazing. After spending years trying to figure things out for himself, Savage now has an amazing opportunity to show a new generation how to do it as well.

MythBusters Jr. will debut on the Discovery Channel sometime in late 2018.

What do you think? Are you excited to see Adam return and train the next generation of MythBusters? Should he wear a brown robe the whole season and speak like Yoda the entire time? Let me know on Twitter at @donnielederer or sound off in the comments below.
