Fans of the show White Collar might soon see the return of their favorite character, Neal Caffrey, to their TV screens as part of the FBI's White Collar Crime unit.

In a recent interview with TV Line, actor Matt Bomer revealed that there are talks of reviving White Collar, which ran for six seasons and made Bomer and the rest of the cast highly popular.

There has been a growing interest from audiences in nostalgic procedural shows, as evidenced by the upcoming off-shoot revival of USA Network's other fan favorite, Suits.

“There has been talk,” Bomer said when asked about the series. “It's actually very legitimate talk, it's in conversation.” The actor played the fan-favorite charming con artist helping the FBI solve crimes.

“A lot of things need to fall into place, but there is a plan in effect, at least, so we'll see what happens,” he added. The idea of revival has been on fans' minds since May 2020, when Bomer and the cast virtually connected for a reunion.

While it's unclear which cast members will return, one will be sorely missed: Willie Garson, who passed away after the cast reunion. The actor portrayed fan-favorite character Mozzie, Neal's most trusted confidant and fellow con man who knew how to get things done.

Their fantastic chemistry and friendship had been the lifeline of the show, “Obviously, that's the first thing that came to my mind, but I felt that what [creator] Jeff Eastin presented to [star] Tim [DeKay] and I honors what he contributed to the show and honors him as a person,” Bomer said. Adding, “There's no way I would ever be involved with it again if it didn't do so. So, I think it's a way for him to, in some ways, still be a part of the show.”

White Collar aired for six seasons from 2009–2014 and made fans fall in love with charming con man Neal Caffrey, who pairs up with FBI Special Agent in Charge Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) as a criminal informant and solves cases week after week. The series cast includes Tiffani Thiessen as Peter's wife Elizabeth Burke, Marsha Thomason as FBI Agent Diana Berrigan, Sharif Atkins as Agent Clinton Jones, Hilarie Burton as Sara Ellis, and Natalie Morales as Agent Lauren Cruz.
