Video streaming platform Netflix cancelled the talk show Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj after two years and 39 episodes, cited The Hollywood Reporter. The chat show host, Hasan Minhaj, made an official announcement on Tuesday explaining that the talk show has come to an end. 

Taking to Twitter, he wrote: "What a run. @patriotact has come to an end. I got to work with the best writers, producers, researchers, and animators in the game. My two babies were born and grew up with the show. TY to @Netflix and everyone who watched. Now it’s time to return these screens to Best Buy."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show's final episode aired June 26. Netflix picked up the show in 2018 with a 32-episode order, then extended it by seven more instalments earlier this year. The 39 episodes ran over six cycles.

Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj has won an Emmy, a Peabody Award, and two Webby Awards during its runtime of about two years. 

While talking to Variety about the show, Hasan had said, "It allowed me to break out of the cognitive framework of being in the late-night world with multiple Jimmy’s because I was not speaking to the North American audience anymore, I’m speaking to the world. When I’m doing a piece about the elections in the Philippines, or censorship in China, or Indian elections, or Saudi Arabia — there are more people outside of the continental United States that know about that stuff, then people here in the States, know about those issues."
