Plot Synopsis

Hosted by comedian Hasan Minhaj, PATRIOT ACT WITH HASAN MINHAJ is a half-hour weekly series that explores the modern cultural and political landscape with depth and sincerity, as Hasan brings his incisive and nuanced perspective to global news, politics and culture. Each week, Hasan investigates the larger trends shaping our fragmented world. On Sunday, October 28, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the first two episodes of PATRIOT ACT:

"Saudi Arabia": In the wake of journalist Jamal Khashoggi's death, Hasan exposes grim truths about Saudi Arabia and the charismatic crown prince known as MBS.

"Affirmative Action": Hasan breaks down how a lawsuit by Asian American students against Harvard could kill affirmative action, and where a conservative activist fits in.

After a two-month beak, PATRIOT ACT WITH HASAN MINHAJ returned with new episodes on Sunday, February 10, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, kicking off what Netflix called Volume 2 of the series. In this new episode, "Censorship in China," after addressing his Saudi Arabia controversy, Hasan highlights censorship in China and how a #MeToo movement has emerged despite government controls.
PATRIOT ACT WITH HASAN MINHAJ returned with a third batch of episodes on Sunday, May 12, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released the first episode of Volume 3. In the premiere, "Brazil, Corruption and the Rainforest," Hasan details new threats to the Amazon rainforest and indigenous people in Brazil, then discusses the crucial upcoming Philippines election. A new episode debuts each Sunday.
