The sudden departure of the Mythbusters “Build Team” in 2014 from the hit television series was met with no small amount of concern from fans, but it turns out that Kari Byron, Tory Belleci, and Grant Imahara weren’t done with exploring the mysteries of technology, science, and pop culture.

Netflix has released the first trailer for White Rabbit Project, the streaming video service’s new science series featuring the former Mythbusters trio that has them investigating all kinds of scientific and technological oddities and urban legends.

Premiering this month, White Rabbit Project sends Byron, Belleci, and Imahara “down the rabbit hole to investigate weird and wonderful events from pop culture, science, and history.”

“Under their microscope are topics as diverse as jailbreaks, superpower technology, heists, and crazy World War II weapons,” states the official synopsis of the series. “In each episode the hosts immerse themselves in experiments, builds and tests as they sleuth the truth behind these and other well googled themes.”

The series hails from the team at Beyond Productions, producers of the Emmy-nominated Mythbusters, which aired for 15 seasons on Discovery Channel before wrapping up its run earlier this year. The trailer for White Rabbit Project seems to suggest the series will take a bit more lighthearted approach toward investigating various scientific mysteries and pop-culture theories, with episodes devoted to researching jailbreaks, the possibility of superpowers, and various rumors regarding secret World War II weapons, among other topics.

The entire first season of White Rabbit Project will premiere December 9 on Netflix.
