Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj returns from March 29, 2020, for its 6th season for yet another batch of episodes. This is what we know. Here is what we know.
Season 5 discussed some excellent issues like starting the season with mental health but also addressed billionaires, quick style, retirement, and a lot of political comparisons and the next US election in 2020.
On November 10, 2019, the Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj Season 5 premiered at Netflix, ending on December 22, 2019.
Netflix revealed a total of 32 episodes in its initial announcement of the ‘Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj.’ The series has, therefore, officially completed its initially accepted episodes. However, despite the success of the show, Netflix is expected to see another bunch of episodes aired during 2020. We expect the Hasan Minhaj Season 6 Patriot Act to be published in March 2020.
What Is The Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj About?
While the show focuses on contemporary social, political, and cultural issues, the series has excellent writing, and Minhaj strengthens it by his smooth delivery and funny jokes. Minhaj thus manages to examine the problems of concern with good intensity and ensure that the show remains a hilarious disruption despite its serious content through weird and hilarious narratives.
As Volume 1 debuted on October 28, 2018, critics and audiences immediately received attention. The seven episodes of this show focused on the issues of affirmative action in the United States, workplace harassment by Amazon, the effects of the US boom in oil production, immigration issues in the United States, content control and freedom of expression, and the dark side of Saudi Arabia, following the assassination of columnist Jamal Khashoggi from the Washington Post.
Controversy erupted, however, after Saudi Arabia officials alleged that Minhaj’s criticism of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was in breach of Saudi Arabia’s law on anti-cybercrime. Netflix subsequently pulled the episode from its Saudi Arabia streaming service. In the opening episode of Volume 2, which premiered on February 10, 2019, Minhaj reacted publicly by attacking Netflix.
Volume 2 continues at the same rate as Volume 1 of incidents of repression in China, student loans in the United States, and the gradual dismantlement of civil rights under the administration of Trump. On the other hand, Season 3 has Minaj thinking about NRA, Indian government corruption, and even cricket. On the other side, Season 4 addresses issues such as opioids, police, video games, etc. Season 5 deals with subjects such as fast fashion, obesity, and philanthropy.
If the next season follows the precedents set by previous seasons, more insightful and funny episodes will be expected. Hopefully, Minhaj will dig deeper into today’s cultural and political environment.
