The star explained the group will have a socially distanced meet-up on video platform Zoom to re-enact the show’s first ever episode in honour of Malcolm in The Middle’s 20th anniversary.
Sharing a promo photo of the sitcom, which starred Frankie Muniz as the titular character, Cranston captioned the snap: “Here we are… all are stuck in this five months of quarantine! Can you imagine how Hal would have gone bonkers on Malcolm in the Middle if he had to stay inside with his five knuckle-headed boys?! Makes me smile to think about that.
“So, if you’ve been missing some silliness in your life, check us out this Saturday night 8/8 for a 20th anniversary celebration of the show’s premiere. The cast is back!! This time we’re reading the pilot episode on Zoom.”
Cranston went on to explain that show creator Linwood Boomer was behind the idea of the reunion to raise money for his charity Healing California, which aims to provide free, quality dental, medical, and vision care to those in need.
Malcolm in the Middle was hugely popular with both audiences and critics, winning seven Emmy Awards and a Grammy between its original run between 2000 and 2006.
Cranston has gone on to achieve worldwide success after the sitcom came to the end, going on to play science-teacher-turned-drugs-lord Walter White in Breaking Bad.
Recently, the star revealed he had contracted coronavirus but had only had “mild symptoms” of the potentially deadly disease.
Having now made a full recovery, Cranston was now donating his blood plasma, which contains vital Covid-19 antibodies.
“I wanted to announce that I had COVID-19… a little while ago,” he explained last month. “Very lucky, very mild symptoms. And so I thought maybe there’s something I can do.
“Don’t forget to wash your hands, social distance and wear a mask!”
