‘Patriot Act’ cancelled: Hasan Minhaj fans urge Netflix to reverse the decision


PTI, Aug 20, 2020, 11:58 AM IST

Comedian Hasan Minhaj shared on social media that his popular talk show Patriot Act won’t be returning on Netflix.

Minraj took to Twitter to confirm the news expressing his gratitude to all those who worked on it.

“What a run. @patriotact has come to an end. I got to work with the best writers, producers, researchers, and animators in the game. My 2 babies were born and grew up with the show. TY to @Netflix and everyone who watched. Now it’s time to return these screens to Best Buy,” Minhaj tweeted.

Fans are upset about the development and have started a petition to urge Netflix to reconsider the decision. The petition has already received around 70,000 signatures.

The comedy show, which has won an Emmy, a Peabody Award, and two Webby Awards, explores the modern cultural and political landscape with depth and sincerity.

Each week, Minhaj would use his unique comedic voice and storytelling skills to investigate the larger trends shaping the fragmented world.

The first season of the Patriot Act debuted on Netflix in October 2018 to glowing reviews from the critics. Subsequently, the streamer released five more seasons.

The sixth season was due to release on March 29 but was postponed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. It finally premiered on Netflix on May 17 and ended on June 28.
