Adam Savage is about to get a new generation hooked on MythBusters. The host of the Discovery Channel’s science-based series will return to host MythBusters Jr., a new spin-off show featuring young geniuses busting myths.
Guided by Savage, six of the nation’s most scientifically savvy kids will get the chance to show off their prowess and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) skills as they separate fact from fiction over the course of 10 episodes.
“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,” Savage said in a statement. “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.”
MythBusters Jr. will premiere on the Science Channel in the fourth quarter of 2018.
