“Saying goodbye to WHITE COLLAR – and Neal and Peter – after six successful seasons is incredibly difficult, but I couldn’t be prouder of what our entire team has accomplished over the last six years,” said Eastin. “I’m grateful to FTVS and USA for giving the show a great home, and I can’t wait for fans to see the twists, surprises and phenomenal performances our final season has in store for them.”
The thrilling final season picks up on last season’s cliffhanger, when Caffrey has disappeared, sans ankle bracelet. Personal transitions and returning enemies complicate things when Caffrey and Agent Burke are pitted against the most sought-after network of criminals in the world, the Pink Panthers.
With the help of Mozzie (Garson) and FBI agents, Barrigan and Jones, they will attempt to infiltrate and bring down the Infamous criminal ring. Guest stars for the final bow include Ross McCall, Gavin Lee, Bridget Regan, Toby Leonard Moore, Paloma Guzman, Michael Potts, Isaach de Bankole and Diahann Carroll.
A critical darling since it debuted, the Los Angeles Times praised the series, saying it was “Sparkling, snappy, bursting with energy and good clean heist fun…” while USA Today pointed out “everything about the show is a fun, shiny fantasy.” Boston Globe noted it was“…one of the best new shows of the season,” and the New York Post lauded “…it’s a whole lotta fun.” Over five seasons, WHITE COLLAR has been honored with four consecutive years of People’s Choice Award nominations (2011-2014) and a NAACP Image Award nomination for Diahann Carroll, among other accolades.
