Adam Savage’s return to television is getting closer as host and executive producer of MYTHBUSTERS Jr., a 10-episode series that will give six of the nation’s most talented kids a chance to show off their amazing ingenuity and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) skills. They’ll tackle myths similar to those seen in MythBusters, ranging from driving, explosions, chemistry, physics, popular culture and more. The series is currently in production and will premiere in the Fourth Quarter of 2018 on Science Channel.
Via EW.com, you can see a trailer of the new series. Adam Savage writes:
“In 2015, when we wrapped MythBusters after 15 years of filming, I didn’t imagine I’d ever bust myths again,” Savage says. “And when [Discovery CEO] David Zaslav called to ask if I was interested in hosting I was surprised that my answer was yes. And it’s been better than I could have imagined: We brought back much of our original crew, so it definitely feels like getting the band back together. But these six kids, the new Mythbusters, inspire me every day with their energy, their curiosity, and their lovely spirits. The show we are making feels both deeply familiar and yet also wholly new.”
