'Mythbusters' To Take A 'New Direction,' Axes Kari Bryon, Tory Belleci & Grant Imahara
"Mythbusters" hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman announced on Thursday night's episode that Kari Bryon, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara won't be returning to the series.
After 10 years of work on the program, the trio expressed their thanks and love for the show on Twitter. Kari Bryon wrote:
The show is taking a new direction. It was an amazing run. I learned so much about myself and the world. I love you all @MythBusters— Kari Byron (@KariByron) August 22, 2014
Savage thanked his co-stars for their decade of hard work.
No specific reason for the drastic change has been revealed by the Discovery Channel. A representative for the show told FOX411 in an email:
"Kari, Tory and Grant have been an incredibly important part of 'MythBusters' for over a decade. From explosions to car crashes to even more explosions, this trio has helped shape 'MythBusters' into the Emmy-nominated series it is today. Everyone at Discovery wants to thank them for their tireless work busting almost 1000 myths, and we wish them all the best on their future endeavors."
