Soon after, the Science Channel announced plans to revive the show, first as a reality TV series "Search for the next [=MythBusters=]", later renamed to ''[=MythBusters=]: The Search'', before snapping back to the old format (tentatively titled ''[=MythBusters=]: The Next Generation''). The search was hosted by Series/{{Nerdist}} editor Kyle Hill and will air in early 2017, presumably followed by the proper revival series later in the year or in 2018. In the meantime, Creator/{{Netflix}} commissioned Beyond International Group, the company behind [=MythBusters=], to rope Kari, Tory and Grant into a SpiritualSuccessor of the show called ''Series/WhiteRabbitProject'', which also focuses on legends and theories, but instead of busting them, the show seeks to ''validate'' them. ''White Rabbit Project'' premiered with 10 episodes on December 9th, 2016, on Netflix.

** Situational irony bites Adam in the Rocketmen episode when he's melting gummi bears on a burner in a glass dish. He describes all the dangers involved in working with a superheated syrup, only for the ''dish'' to suddenly shatter from the heat.

** That real-life example, while awesome, isn't a fit for the myth, though. The myth was about landing a large commercial airliner, not a Cessna two-seater - and the passenger in question did have experience flying other planes and so wasn't a complete novice as the myth depicts.

* BucketHelmet: Used in the myth about walking in circles blind in a forest. This really is how people train to navigate dangerous, low-visual range situations such as blizzards.
