Mythbusters spin-off reveals explosive first trailer

Exclusive first look at the new series

Posted on

The first trailer forĀ Mythbusters: The Search is here!

Science Channel’s spin-off of the long-running cable franchise is a competition series searching for the next hosts for a revival of the Mythbusters flagship show. The above trailer reveals the 10 contestants (which are a rather camera-friendly group), gives glimpses of some of the myth-testing competitions (such as finding a needle in a haystack), and shows plenty of stuff blowing up in interesting and colorful ways.

These contenders with build skills and science smarts will be judged each week as they bust various myths. Nerdist science editor Kyle Hill serves as host. There’s also a premiere date: Saturday, January 7, 2017 at 9 p.m.

Discovery Channel’s original Mythbusters launched in 2003 with hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage and ran for an incredible 14 years.
