Frankie Muniz confirms Malcolm in the Middle will be rebooted if one condition is met

Frankie Muniz confirms Malcolm in the Middle will be rebooted if one condition is met

The Malcolm actor is all in for a reboot

Sure, there’s loads of new shows and films constantly being released and teased, but we still find ourselves going back to the same stuff.

Yeah, Netflix you can tempt me with a new thriller, sure, but I’ll likely still stick to rewatching a sitcom.

Then again, one way to reel us all in is the promise of a reboot of our favourites.

And one of the beloved sitcoms of our generation just has to be Malcolm in the Middle.

Frankie Muniz, who played the titular character, has now confirmed it will be rebooted if a specific condition is met.

Watch him talk about his hopes for the show to come back here:

Malcolm in the Middle ran for over 150 episodes between 2000 to 2006.

Muniz has previously spoken about not remembering much about filming the family comedy, but during Mayim Bialik’s podcast Breakdown said he watched it for the first time ever about a decade ago.

“It was really interesting to watch because I really got to watch it as a viewer as I didn’t necessarily remember what was going to happen in the episodes,” he explained.

“My perspective of the show completely changed of what I thought the show was to what it actually was.”

And so, the actor-turned-race-car-driver tweeted he’d love ‘to know where Malcom and his family are now’.

This led to the cast sending emails together with everybody insisting ‘we gotta do this, we gotta do it’.

When they got in touch with the show’s creator, Linwood Boomer, he apparently said: “I think it would be amazing but I don’t want to do it."

Explaining he didn’t have the time, he said he’d give his blessing if the team got two specific writers on board.

While Muniz didn’t disclose who they are, he explained Bryan Cranston (who played Malcolm’s dad Hal) is leading it and has been working with the writers ‘for the last two years’.

Frankie Muniz is known for playing Malcolm in Malcolm in the Middle.

“I would love it, especially as I have a greater appreciation of what the show is and was and would love to dive in with all those people again to do it,” the star added.

But he did also say: “So many shows have been rebooted and so many shows shouldn’t have been rebooted.

“So, I don’t wanna be just like one of those shows, it has to make sense. It has to be good.”

It’s good news for Malcolm in the Middle fans then, let’s just hope those writers whip up something amazing.
