At the end of last night’s episode of MythBusters, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman announced that Kari Byron, Tory Belleci, and Grant Imahara were leaving the show. In the aftermath of the announcement, all involved took to Twitter to say their goodbyes; Byron also announced that the “show is taking a new direction.”

It’s been an amazing ride for 10 years! We couldn’t have done it without you guys. You’re the best fans anyone could wish for. Thank you

After a decade of the Mythbusters, we are no longer with the show. 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 @MythBusters

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. Also, explosions. Now, on to the next adventure!
