Thanks to the success of “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp,” “Arrested Development,” “Fuller House,” “The X Files” and more, we’re currently living in a golden age of television revival series, and it looks like “Malcolm in the Middle” could be the next popular series to get a highly anticipated resurrection. Speaking at the Maui Film Festival, where he was being honored with the Navigator Award, Bryan Cranston revealed that he would completely be on board with bringing Hal and the gang back to television screens.
“I sure hope so,” the actor said when asked if a revival was in the cards. “I really do, for no other reason than that I miss those people like crazy and I stay in touch with them. The boys are doing great and Jane [Kaczmarek] is doing wonderfully and I’d love to.”
It’s been just over 10 years since “Malcolm in the Middle” signed off the air after running for seven seasons and 151 episodes. The FOX comedy, which earned a Peabody Award and seven Emmy Awards over the course of its run, centered around a young genius (Frankie Muniz) and his dysfunctional family, and it catapulted Muniz, Cranston and Kaczmarek into the comedy history books. A revival is still just an idea at this point, but the blockbuster success of “Fuller House” indicates that it might be a huge hit.
“I don’t know how it works,” Cranston said about the new rival trend. “I don’t know how everything works anymore but all I want to do is tell the story and have a good experience.”
Cranston can next be seen in the drug crime drama “The Infiltrator,” which hits theaters on July 13. He was recently cast as Zordon in the upcoming “Power Rangers” movie reboot, expected to hit theater son March 24, 2017.
