- White Collar, a popular TV series, is set for a reboot in 2024
- Original cast members, including Matt Bomer, will be returning for the revival

Fans of the popular television series White Collar can look forward to a reboot in 2024, with many of the original cast members returning. Matt Bomer, who played the lead role of Neal Caffrey, will reprise his role in the reboot, along with other cast members. However, the show’s creator, Jeff Eastin, will not have a role in the revival project.
White Collar originally aired on USA Network from 2009 to 2014, lasting for six seasons and garnering a dedicated fan base. The show followed the story of Neal Caffrey (played by Bomer), a con artist who starts working with the FBI as a criminal informant under the supervision of Special Agent Peter Burke (played by Tim DeKay).
The reboot will pick up the story where it left off, capturing the adventures of Caffrey and Burke as they continue to solve white-collar crimes together. Other returning cast members include Willie Garson, Marsha Thomason, and Sharif Atkins. The announcement for the reboot came after several social media teasers, creating anticipation among fans.
Though Eastin will not be a part of the revival, he did express his enthusiasm for the project on social media, wishing the cast and crew the best of luck. The reasoning behind his departure has not been disclosed.
The White Collar reboot marks another instance of popular TV series being revived in recent years, following examples such as Gilmore Girls, Twin Peaks, and Arrested Development. With the nostalgia factor, a dedicated previous fan base, and the return of the original cast, the White Collar reboot is sure to be a highly anticipated event.
