In an interview with EW, the stars said they've known about the show's forthcoming cancellation for a year now. They've used that time to prepare an epic sendoff for the final episode of Mythbusters.
"It was my greatest fear that Mythbusters would just stop and we wouldn't be able to do proper final episodes," Savage said. "So whether it's myths about human behavior or car stories or explosion stories, we tried to find the most awesome example of each category and build on our past history."
The final season of Mythbusters begins January 9 on Discovery. This will be preceded by a marathon starting December 23 on Science Channel that will run every episode released to date.

In August 2014, Mythbusters made the controversial decision to drop hosts Kari Byron, Grant Imahara, and Tory Belleci.
