White Collar: USA Network Show Renewed for Season Two

White CollarWhile the series is only halfway through its first season, USA has given the go-ahead for a second season of freshman drama White Collar.

White Collar follows conman Neal Caffrey (Matthew Bomer) who makes a deal to help FBI Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay ) while searching for his missing girlfriend, Kate (Alexandra Daddario). The crime drama also stars Willie Garson, Tiffani Thiessen, Sharif Atkins, Natalie Morales, and James Rebhorn.

The show debuted in October with a bang and 5.4 million viewers. The ratings dwindled to a low of 3.85 million during the first half of its season but ended on a high note. Following the series finale of Monk, White Collar’s fall finale drew 5.5 million.

Though only half of the first season has aired thus far, the show’s already been renewed for a second season. Jeff Eastin, White Collar’s creator and executive producer, first tweeted the news, writing, “White Collar season 2 pickup is official! Congratulations to the best cast and crew on television.”

The pickup was later confirmed by USA. The cable channel’s president of original programming, Jeff Wachtel, said, “Jeff Eastin created a show that was both on-brand and that arguably took USA Network to a new level of sophistication. After breaking out of the gate so strongly, and with finale ratings that actually exceeded the premiere, White Collar was a lock for a second season.”

Its unclear thus far when the second season will air or how many episodes have actually been ordered.

The cast and crew just wrapped production on season one on Sunday. The remaining seven episodes will begin airing on Tuesday, January 19, 2010.

What do you think? Are you glad to hear there will be more White Collar coming your way?

White COllar is a great show and I hope it runs for many seasons. The actors are great and the interaction is just fun to watch. Matt Bomer is the best young actor I have seen in a while and the others are great too. Looking forward to the second season. It’s a refreshing change from the glum tv that we are usually given.

It sucks that Monk is over but I’m so happy White Collar was picked up. I really like this show. Please keep this show on the air and don’t cancel it like Eastwick or Dollhouse!

I truly enjoy watching White Collar. Besides the fact that Matthew Bomer is a sight to see, the show is very interesting. That last episode was a true cliffhanger. (Lisa said it right!)

I really like White Collar but LOVE NCIS and there is no way I’ll give up Gibbs on Tuesday night for any other show, no matter how good it is. Sorry Matt Bomer. Wish you had stayed in your original spot!!

I agree with lisa. I do not know why more people have voiced their opinion. The only thing I can think of is that all my friends do not take this web site seriously. I tell them that it is important to let networks know what they think. I do not think they want to take the time. If you are ready this, does not take that much time to send your opinon.

I am very glad that White Collar has been picked up for a second season. It is a sophisticated drama that with an interesting twist. I thought the final fall episode was well done with many interesting twists and an exceptional cliffhanger. I am looking forward to the last part of this season that starts in mid January. I have had nothing good to watch on Fridays since the last show. I look forward to the second season as well.
