Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj has just wrapped up its fifth and possibly best season to date. Another 7 episodes of informative comedy akin to that of Last Week Tonight has been dropping weekly since November 10th and appears more is on the way in 2020 with volume/season 6.
Season 5 (or volume 5 as Netflix names it) has tackled some excellent issues including kickstarting the season with mental health but as also tackled billionaires, fast fashion, retirement and plenty of nods and references to politics and the upcoming 2020 US election.
In total, Patriot Act has now produced 32 episodes making it the second-longest variety/talk show for Netflix. Chelsea, which ended in 2017 produced 120 episodes in total although most aren’t available to watch on Netflix anymore.
Netflix has continued uploading segments to YouTube which has seen crazy growth over the past year. Many of the longer segments are reaching over 1 million views per video. “Why billionaires won’t save us” (embedded below) hit 1.4M.
Will Patriot Act be back for season 6?
In the final episode of volume 5, Hasan tackled obesity and more specifically, how America is actually exporting the problem to most regions.
At the end of the episode, however, Hasan took a more broad overview of the year that was and the problems the world faces in 2019. He gave some advice to “close a couple of tabs” saying we need to pass off some of our problems onto others and then double down on issues we’re passionate about.
Closing the episode, he acknowledged his weekly show introducing or doubling down on issues isn’t exactly helping but said “we’re not going to stop doing that” adding “I’ll see you guys in 2020. We got a few more tabs to open”.
When will Patriot Act volume 6 be on Netflix?
No taping dates have been set yet by Onset Productions but once again, we’re expecting new episodes to be taped on Wednesdays before dropping on Netflix on Sundays.
The wait between each of the recent seasons has been around a month. If it’s the case it’s sticking to a similar schedule, we’re expecting Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj returning to Netflix in early 2020, possibly February or March.
