Netflix shows canceled in 2020: The Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj

The cancelation of The Patriot Act is one of the biggest mysteries on our list of good Netflix shows canceled in 2020. Hasan Minhaj’s political talk show, which covered topics such as “Why Doing Taxes is Hard,” “Why We Can’t Retire,” and “How the Coronavirus Broke America,” spanned six seasons. The show’s focus on humor and simplifying complex subject matters made it a fan-favorite since 2018. And, unfortunately, Netflix gave no explanation for the show’s abrupt halt.

The influence and popularity of Patriot Act, created by Minhaj and Prashanth Venkataramanujam, was recognized by Time Magazine, and included Hasan Minhaj on its list of the 100 most influential people in the world in April 2019, creating a show that was as timely as it was timeless, just as the creators intended.

Lucky, Netflix’s cancelation of the show doesn’t mean Patriot Act will disappear. The show also has all the episodes, exclusives, and deep cuts on its YouTube channel with the same name. With 40 episodes across six seasons, the show has won an Emmy, a Peabody Award, and two Webby Awards. The cancellation of such an acclaimed, well-viewed and currently-needed series will continue to remain a mystery though it could just be one of the many productions halted in the disastrous wake of COVID.
