MythBusters ending after 14 seasons

The next season of the Emmy-nominated Discovery Channel series will be its last, culminating in 248 episodes and 2,950 experiments. Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, who were told the news earlier this year, say they've had enough time to plan out their final season. "We’ve been filming the last season this year and we get to send it off,” says Savage. "We get to pay homage to this thing that’s changed our lives.” He adds: "I can tell you I’ve been going through all the Elisabeth Kubler-Ross stages of grief – anger, acceptance, denial – it’s all been happening. I did the math at some point, I spent something like 25,000 hours filming."
