As you can imagine, die-hard fans of the show, which ran for six years, were devastated.
However, Muniz, now 36, has attempted to clear things up with rumours about to his, so called 'memory-loss' after suffering nine concussions.
Speaking on the Steve-O podcast, he revealed that a 'Dancing with the Stars' misunderstanding contributed to the rumour.
In a 2017 version of the show, he said an episode called 'Most Memorable Year Night' led to some of the confusion.
Muniz said they suggested 2001 was his most memorable year when he was nominated for an Emmy and Golden Globe for Malcolm in the Middle - where he was aged 15.
“I go, ‘I don’t remember what I felt then,” Muniz said.
“It was me blowing off the fact that I can’t say that’s my favourite year because I can’t tell you what happened in 2001. You would have to tell me what happened in 2001.
"They didn’t really say it. The storyline in my episode then, as cheesy as it is, I said my most memorable year is the present because I’ve learned through my past to live in the moment.
"Accept everything from what it is. I had to say I don’t really remember, but I wasn’t saying I don’t remember anything. If you told me what I ate for breakfast the day I was nominated for an Emmy, I have no idea.”
Muniz also addressed rumours that he would often experience 'mini-strokes', which he clarifies, isn't the case.
The star revealed that he transient ischemic attacks he would suffer are those of aura migraines and although share the same symptoms of a mini-stroke, isn't the same thing.
He reassured fans by saying: “I just think it’s the fact that I did so f***ing much in that timeframe that of course I can’t remember all of it.
“I have some memories. There’s definitely things that pop up and I go whoa.
"A lot of my memories now are almost like I can’t distinguish if it’s a dream or it was reality. Places I went, people I hung out with… did I really do that?”
