The show's fan-favorite hosts are making an exit after a good 10 years. "Mythbusters" main hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman made the announcement through a video on Discovery Channel.

"This next season we're going back to our origins with just Adam and me," said Hyneman.

Savage added, "We're gonna take a brief moment to thank you guys for your incredible work over the last 10 years. You've given literally your blood, sweat, and tears in the name of science and it has been a total pleasure not only to work with you but to call you our friends."

But fans of the "Mythbusters" trio shouldn't be entirely sad as it looks like the network has something in store for the hosts. Both Byron and Imahara tweeted about a new "adventure" while confirming their exit on the award-winning show.

"After a decade of the MythBusters, we are no longer with the show," Byron said on Twitter. "Thank you to all the fans who have supported us. 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. I am sad for an ending but there will be exciting new adventures for us."

"Thanks MythBusters for allowing us to teach science in a whole new way," Imahara tweeted. "Also, explosions. Now, on to the next adventure!"

Belleci did not mention any new adventure of some sort but thanked fans who have been with them for a decade instead.

She said in a tweet, "We couldn't have done it without you guys. You're the best fans anyone could wish for. Thank you. We are going to miss you guys! So much love & support. If it wasn't for you guys, MythBusters wouldn't have been possible."

"Mythbusters," via its official Twitter account, created a tribute to the trio, captioning it, "We want to thank @KariByron @GrantImahara @ToryBelleci for their tireless work, and wish them all the best."

Discovery Channel has also thanked the trio in a statement, as quoted by Hollywood Reporter:

"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 1,000 myths, and we wish them all the best on their future endeavors."

As Hyneman said in the video announcement, the show will be run by the original hosts starting next season. Byron, Imahara and Belleci's last appearance on the show was Thursday, August 21.
