Mythbusters Cancelled - Season 14 will be their last.

It's the Myth we hoped Adam and Jamie would define as Busted, but for the fans of this popular TV show it is Confirmed. Mythbusters Season 14, set to air January 9th next year will be the shows final season.

The popular program — famous for debunking high-profile myths and urban legends was one of Discovery Channel's longest-running shows. Broadcasting for the 1st time on September 23, 2003 Myth Busters will go out after 248 episodes and 2,950 experiments.

While this may come as a shock to fans, the show's stars Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman had actually known the news for a while now. Adam admits he was nervous that the Discovery series would end without any actual warning, saying: "The thing that really makes me happy is most cable shows like ours just end. They get past their freshness date, you finish a season and then you hear you'll never see another one. I truly thought that's the way Mythbusters would end."

Adam explains, that because they received plenty of notice, they've been taking the time to conclude the program properly, adding: "It was my greatest fear that Mythbusters would just stop and we wouldn't be able to do proper final episodes. So whether it's myths about human behavior or car stories or explosion stories, we tried to find the most awesome example of each category and build on our past history."

Jamie revealed that, while he was sometimes frustrated with the minor manipulation that goes along with producing any reality show, he was grateful for the way in which the TV show inspired people to express an interest in science, saying: "The kind of appreciation that's been expressed by people all over the place for what we've done, for encouraging them or their family or kids to be interested in science, is absolutely wonderful. I can't think of anything that would be more important than that."

After loosing Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara last year, we now lose Adam and Jamie too. Hopefully they can go out with a Bang!
