When Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj was announced, it felt like a win for representation and quality political satire. Patriot Act sheds light on cultural and political landscapes all over the world, and gained a huge following in both the US and India. The show is unique and unabashed. It has fantastic and funny visuals that redefine and help take Hasan Minhaj‘s stand-up game to the next level. Imagine PowerPoint presentations in your Government and Politics class- except they’re exploding with color all over the stage, funded by a MNC worth billions, and presented by one of the finest and most well dressed (courtesy of Tan France) stand-up comedians of our time. Watching Patriot Act is an experience; it left viewers thinking about something new and meaningful every Sunday.
Patriot Act premiered on Netflix in October 2018. The show has released 39 episodes over 6 volumes since then. The series also won a Peabody award and an Emmy award for outstanding motion design.
Unfortunately, the show will not be renewed for a 7th volume, thus coming to an end. Hasan Minhaj took to Twitter to share the news.
We can’t wait to see all that Hasan goes on to do post Patriot Act.
