Debuting in 2018, Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj sought to “explore the modern cultural and political landscape with depth and sincerity” as well as humor. Host Minhaj explored topics like the role of Amazon in the United States economy, America’s continued reliance on oil, immigration policies, free speech and social media, censorship in China, student loans, and drug pricing.
Last year, Patriot Act picked up a Peabody Award, an Emmy Award, and three Webby Awards. The sixth and final season of eight episodes was delayed due to the COVID-10 pandemic. The installments were released between May 17th and June 28th of this year.
Minhaj announced the show’s demise on social media:
Existing episodes will continue to be available for streaming on Netflix. Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj is the latest in a line of talk shows that have aired and been cancelled on Netflix. They include Chelsea, The Break with Michelle Wolf, and The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale.
