Life is fair because Malcolm in the Middle will be available to stream on All 4 from next month.
The beloved sitcom, which ran for 151 episodes between 2000 and 2006, will be available to stream on Channel 4’s online platform as part of a deal with the Walt Disney company.
Speaking about the new addition, Channel 4’s Head of Series Acquisitions Nick Lee said: “What an absolute gem of a box set to add to the already classic collection we’re building on All 4. It’s great to give this whip-smart classic a new lease of life for new audiences. It’s going be a happy addition to our All 4 family, you’ll just find yourself burning through in no time”.
For anyone that's unfamiliar with the show, the comedy sees Frankie Muniz play the lead role of Malcolm Wilkerson, an extremely intelligent boy, who lives with his highly dysfunctional family while dealing with the everyday difficulties of being a middle child and teenager.
To be honest, it's Bryan Cranston performance as Malcolm's dad Hal that steals every scene, but Jane Kaczmarek is also excellent as his short-tempered and disciplinarian mother, Lois.
The cast also includes great performances by Christopher Masterson, Justin Berfield and Erik Per Sullivan, who play Malcolm's brothers Francis, Reese and Dewey.
At the time of its release on Sky One, the show really resonated with Irish audiences and that's mainly due to the remarkable quality and consistency of the episodes, especially considering the fact that the show ran as long as it did.
During its tenure on air, the show won a Peabody Award, seven Emmy Awards, one Grammy Award and received seven Golden Globe nominations.
You can see why when all seven seasons of Malcolm in the Middle are available to stream on All 4 from October 2.
