WHITE COLLAR Season 4 Announced

WHITE COLLAR (USA) "Where There's A Will"
USA Network has officially renewed its original series WHITE COLLAR for a fourth season. Season 4 will include 16 new episodes.

White Collar has achieved its best season ever this summer averaging 5.7 million total viewers. The second part of season 3 of White Collar will return in January 2012 with six all-new episodes.

Even more exciting, the remaining six episodes feature the directorial debut of series star Tim DeKay (Peter) for a baseball themed episode titled “Stealing Home” and guest starring Hal Oszan.

Other guest stars when the show returns will include Joe Manganiello, Dylan Baker, Beau Bridges, Tom Skerritt, Ross McCall, Diahann Carroll, Elizabeth Gillies, Graham Phillips, Lola Glaudini, Will Chase, Murphy Guyer, Tom Degnan, Bailey Chase and Debra Monk.

White Collar focuses on the unlikely partnership between charming con artist Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) and straightforward FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay). Caffrey provides his expertise to help Burke and agents Clinton Jones (Sharif Atkins) and Diana Berrigan (Marsha Thomason) catch other elusive criminals in exchange for his freedom. Although Caffrey’s cunning ways help nab other white collar criminals, in the series third season, he uses those talents to keep everyone guessing as to which side he’s really on. When love interest and insurance investigator Sara Ellis (Hilarie Burton) finds out Neal and Mozzie (Willie Garson) have the stolen treasure, she walks away and Neal is forced to figure out if his relationships he’s made are more important than the life of the con. The mid-season finale, which premiered on Tuesday, August 9 at 9/8c, ended on a cliffhanger with the kidnapping of Peter’s wife Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen) by Matthew Keller (guest star Ross McCall).
