Matt Bomer ‘Optimistic’ About White Collar Reboot
Could a White Collar reboot really happen? On Thursday, TV Line reported that during the White Collar reunion, on the Stars in the House YouTube channel, Matt Bomer shared his “excitement over the possibility of a reboot of the popular USA Network series. Matt spoke with the two co-hosts, Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley.
He shared that this is not just a casual Twitter tease. Bomer revealed that there are “real” discussions going on. They don’t know what the final result will be, but those behind-the-scenes “creatives” are trying to make this happen. Fans that want to see Neal Caffrey pull off another caper can allow themselves to dream, as Matt used such words as “optimistic,” “hopeful” and “excitement.”
“There are real conversations happening. There seems to be a lot of excitement about it. What form that takes and how it plays out and whether all the creatives involved can work it out and make it happen is yet to be seen. But we’re all really optimistic and hopeful.”
Appearing on the virtual reunion was Bomer, as well as Tim DeKay (Peter Burke) In addition Sharif Atkins (Clinton Jones), Hilarie Burton (Sara Ellis), Willie Garson (Mozzie), Marsha Thomason (Diana Berrigan) and Tiffani Thiessen (Elizabeth Burke) all reunited for this special event that benefitted the Trevor Project.
White Collar Revival Possibilities
There are many ways that this could could come into fruition. One option is a reunion movie, similar to another USA Network show, Psych. They could consider filming a movie every year or so. Another option is to fully reboot the series for a short season.
As previously suggested, there is currently a good storyline opportunity now. Diahann Carroll, who portrayed June, passed away last year, this could be a catalyst for a new episode and reunion between Neal and Peter. The way the series ended in January 2014 certainly gave room for a movie or a reboot in the future.
