About MythBusters: The Search
MythBusters: The Search is an all-new series featuring the next generation of fearless contenders with killer build skills, science smarts and nerves of steel, ready to be judged each week as they bust myths and vie for the win in becoming the next myth-busting superstars.
MythBusters premiered on Discovery Channel in 2003 and would go on to earn eight consecutive Emmy nominations for Outstanding Reality Program from 2009 to 2016. MythBusters fused scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to create a signature style of explosive experimentation.
The series ended in March 2016 after 2,950 experiments, 910 explosions and 83 miles of duct tape. There is a love of busting myths and those with the unflappable curiosity to try it. MythBusters: The Search aims to find these people.
Hosted by Kyle Hill - a MythBusters superfan -- MythBusters: The Search marks the start of a new myth-busting era on Science Channel. As host, Hill introduces the contestants and the myths they attempt to bust each week. Using never-before-seen spectacular stunts, some myth-busting challenges will focus on build skills, while others require science know-how; some will test ingenuity, while others will test resolve, all with the goal of busting new myths.
In other words, it's the continuing busting of myths, celebration of curiosity, questioning, and experimentation that was the hallmark of the original series -- plus, of course, explosions.
