“Malcolm In The Middle” Coming Soon To Disney+ (UK/IRE)

Disney has announced that all seven seasons of “Malcolm In The Middle” will be coming to Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland on  Wednesday, December 15, 2021.

Malcolm in the Middle is an American family television sitcom created by Linwood Boomer for Fox. The series premiered on January 9, 2000, and ended on May 14, 2006, after seven seasons and 151 episodes.

The series follows a dysfunctional lower middle-class family and stars Frankie Muniz in the lead role as Malcolm, an adolescent who tests at a genius level. While he enjoys his intelligence, he greatly resents having to take special classes for gifted children, which are mocked by the rest of the kids at school and called “Krelboynes”, referring to the clumsy and nerdy lead character Seymour Krelboyne from Little Shop of Horrors. Jane Kaczmarek plays Malcolm’s overbearing, hotheaded and stubborn mother, Lois, and Bryan Cranston plays his immature, manic, but loving father, Hal. Christopher Kennedy Masterson plays eldest brother, Francis, the trouble-making son who, in earlier episodes, was in military school, but eventually marries and settles into a steady job. Justin Berfield is Malcolm’s dimwitted older brother, Reese, a cruel bully who tortures Malcolm at home, even while he defends him at school.

The series was originally expected to be available when Disney+ launched but that never happened. The series might eventually become available in other regions, but for the moment, this is just the UK and Ireland.
