'The MythBusters' team is being busted up, with Thursday's episode on Discovery being the final show for fan favorites Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara. Original hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman will be featured alone next season.

Savage and Hyneman thanked the trio for the past 10 years on the show and giving their "blood, sweat and tears" in the name of science, according to E! News.



The hosts expressed their feelings about the departure on Twitter.


Byron was a graduate of San Francisco State University and began her career as a sculptor and painter. That work led her to work with Hyneman at his M5 Industries, which led to her moving on to working with him on "MythBusters," according to Discovery.

His special effects were also included in the movies "Starship Troopers," "Sphere," "Galaxy Quest," "Bicentennial Man," "Terminator 3," "The Matrix" and "The Matrix Reloaded."

Imahara, a Los Angeles native, is credited with updating R2-D2 for the "Star Wars" prequel and developing a custom circuit to cycle the Energizer Bunny's arm beats and ears, according to Discovery. He earned a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California and wrote the book "Kickin' Bot: An Illustrated Guide to Building Combat Robots."
