Netflix cancels Hasan Minhaj’s ‘Patriot Act’

Hasan Minhaj left fans devastated after he announced an end to his much acclaimed show, Patriot Act on Netflix. The former Daily Show correspondent took to Twitter to deliver the sad news and thanked his team for making the show an immense success. Many critics are upset about the only South Asian representation on a massive level being taken away.

Soon after news broke out about the show’s cancellation, a petition has been circulating with over 2,000 signatures demanding for the show’s return.

According to a source cited by Forbes, Netflix compares the viewers with the show’s costs when deciding whether or not a show should be renewed. The show’s sixth and final season that premiered in May this year was filmed from Minhaj’s home in front of a green screen as coronavirus pandemic halted production for a number of talk shows.
