Adam Savage Let’s Kids Show Off Their Mad Science Skills In Mythbusters Jr.

If you liked the original MythBusters when it started in 2003, then get ready for Fall 2018 because Adam Savage returns to the series as host and executive producer of a new 10-part series called MythBusters Jr.

The new 10-episode series is giving six talented kids a chance to show off their amazing ingenuity and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) skills.

“I’m so excited to return to Discovery to work with these kids on a new incarnation of the show I love so much,” said Savage. “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.”

Savage will help guide the junior MythBusters, separate fact from fiction. The kids will tackle myths similar to those seen in MythBusters, ranging from driving, explosions, chemistry, physics, popular culture and more.

“Adam Savage is a true American original, a singular talent who inspired a new generation of MythBusters and will now get a chance to mentor a remarkable group of kid geniuses,” said Nancy Daniels, Chief Brand Officer, Discovery and Factual. “MythBusters is an iconic series and to be able to expand its roster in spectacular style with MythBusters Jr. is something that we are proud to do.”

MythBusters debuted on Discovery Channel in 2003 ran for 14 years ending in 2016.  The series earned eight consecutive Emmy nominations for Outstanding Reality Program from 2009-2016. The program fuses scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to create a signature style of explosive experimentation including a healthy dose of actual explosions.

MythBusters Jr. will be produced for Science Channel by Beyond Productions. John Luscombe is executive producer for Beyond. Wyatt Channell will serve as executive producer for Science Channel.
