Hasan Minhaj’s Patriot Act is returning to Netflix in 2019 with at least another six episodes currently planned. Here’s what we know, how we got here, what to expect from the new episodes, and even how you can be in the audience!
Netflix hasn’t had the best time with its talk shows. Both Chelsea Handler’s and Michelle Wolf’s Netflix talk shows were put on ice. Last year, the streaming service had a good stint with David Letterman and late in the year Patriot Act was released.
Instead of going for a late-night talk show format, Patriot Act opts more for the format you’d expect from HBO’s Last Week Tonight and it’s played to the show’s favor.
Multiple times the show has gained main press headlines, the most recent being the fact that Saudi Arabia got Netflix to pull one of the most recent episodes. Adding to that, the show has been very active on social media, even putting up full segments.
When will more episodes of Patriot Act be released on Netflix?
Up until recently, we haven’t known when new episodes will be available. Thanks to a small note that found its way onto the show’s page, we know that the next episode is due out on February 10th, 2019.
That means it’s returning to its regular Sunday spot.
How to be in the audience for Hasan Minhaj’s Patriot Act:
As you may be aware, the filming for Patriot Act takes place in New York, specifically Manhatten. You can be part of the audience for free but you have to live in the tri-state area. That means if you don’t live in New York, New Jersey or Connecticut you’re out of luck.
The filming for the new episode is taking place on February 6th for the episode release on the 10th.
