Mythbusters may be no more, but its legacy is set to live on in the form of White Rabbit Project. Dubbed Mythbusters 2.0, White Rabbit Project will be available to stream on Netflix from December 9, 2016. And we have the official trailer to whet your appetite.
One of the most popular TV shows for geeks ended earlier this year. It was called Mythbusters, as if you hadn’t already guessed, and it was amazing television. However, after 14 seasons over 13 years, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman decided they had busted enough myths, and the show went off air.
We miss Mythbusters. Which is why we have already listed 10 YouTube channels capable of filling the Mythbusters hole. However, we now have an even better option in the form of White Rabbit Project. Or at least we will have from December 9.
White Rabbit Project features the M7 Build Team which were responsible for so much of the cool stuff seen on screen in Mythbusters. So while this isn’t an official sequel by any means, this new show should retain most of the elements which made Mythbusters such a big hit.
White Rabbit Project Is Mythbusters 2.0
According to Netflix, White Rabbit Project will see “Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara rank history’s greatest inventions, heists and more in this series from the producers of MythBusters”.
Given this billing we expect White Rabbit Project to allow Byron, Belleci, and Imahara to do more of the same stuff they did in Mythbusters. But because this is Netflix, and the same rules don’t apply as they do on broadcast television, they should have more leeway to play.
White Rabbit Project will debut on Netflix on December 9, with all 10 episodes from Season 1 available to binge-watch immediately. Even if you have never seen Mythbusters, you should know whether this is the show for you after watching the trailer.
