Is there going to be a White Collar reboot?

If everything goes as planned, yes. At Variety's TV Fest in June, actor Tim DeKay told the audience that he's seen creator Jeff Eastin's script and that it's "fantastic."

"It answers all the questions that one would have if you watch the show and it would introduce the show to those who haven’t seen it as well," he said. "Both edges of the sword are honed."

How will the White Collar reboot address Willie Garson's death?

Garson, who played Mozzie on the series, died from pancreatic cancer in 2021. It's unclear how exactly his character's absence will be explained, but DeKay confirmed that the script "honors" Garson "in a profound way."

Tiffany Thiessen added, "With such sensitivity and such heart. I told Jeff after I finished it, I literally was so excited, but at the same time had tears in my eye—for good reason. You captured the suspense, the thrill, the characters and the love in that reboot."

What will happen in the White Collar reboot?

Eastin didn’t spill plot details at the Variety panel, but he confirmed that the original series ending was "always a setup."

"I always left it open," he said. But it hasn't been until recently, with the popularity of procedurals growing on streaming platforms, that a reboot seemed like a real possibility. "Say thank you to ‘Suits’ for starting this streaming trend," he said. "They were doing great, and got people watching White Collar now on Netflix. That’s doing really, really good.
