White Collar

How do you solve a problem like Neal Caffrey?

(Spoilers if you haven’t seen the end of season 5!)

Unfortunately, if you’re a fan of NBC Universal’s hit show, White Collar, you may never know.  Matt Bomer’s conman, Neal Caffrey, has been abducted and without a series 6 renewal, no one knows whodunit or why. There’s no question that here at Whedonopolis we’re big fans of the show — you can check out our reviews of the past season over in our Review section — and of all the talent that is invested in it, in front of and behind the cameras. As members of multiple fandoms ourselves (Whedonopolis is a project of Fandom Charities, after all), we stand by any collective that wants to make their voices heard to The Powers That Be. At the moment, White Collar is the only USA Network drama series that has had no season pick up, and it’s been six weeks since the season 5 finale.  A cliffhanging finale if ever there was one, at that.  There are no doubt Big Budget and Return On Investment discussions going on behind closed doors at The Network and the Production Studio, but leaving us in limbo isn’t making any friends for either company in the fandom.

Fans of suave, sweet, and sexy conman, Neal Caffrey, and clever, loyal and righteous FBI Agent Peter Burke – along with myriad supporting characters – are making their voices heard and using social media to let TPTB know we all want a Season 6 of White Collar.

How can you get involved? For starters, tweet your support of the show using the hashtag #WhiteCollarForS6 and #CollarsUnited.  Fans have been busy updating their feeds with these tags since the campaign started Feb 24.  Make sure your voice is heard, too!

On Facebook? USA Network has a public page and we encourage you to “like” the page and post your comments and desires for a Season 6 (but remember to be polite!). 

Finally, if you’re into signing petitions and like to see how many other fans are on board with this project, go to http://www.change.org/petitions/network-usa-white-collar-needs-to-be-renewed to add your name to the list. It may not clinch the deal, but it certainly can’t hurt!

If you want to connect with other fans committed to our favorite Conman, then be sure to visit the fan created site, WhiteCollarClosure.tv, where folks are doing their best to keep spirits up and info available.

We don’t know if the network and production company have made any decisions yet, but without adding our voices to the cause, we can’t say we didn’t try to make ourselves heard. The only “con” here is the one in our concern for some closure with White Collar.

    Sorry I misposted. Thanks for the support. Fans from all over the world have been active for weeks. There are not only US citizens, but people from Canada, Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, UK, Poland and so on…), Mexico and Latin America, North Africa. I saw tweets in Russian too!

    You’re welcome, Elizabeth. It’s certainly disheartening that the studio and network haven’t been able to work this out yet – it really seems like a no-brainer given the ratings and success of the show and its stars. The fan support globally has been wonderful and I just hope it’s enough for TPTB to see a way through this that’s a win for everyone.

  • BomerBurton

    Yaaay thank u for mentioning North Africa :)) everyone seems to forget that part of the continent :/

  • BomerBurton

    It’s true we started to fight in January after the end of the hiatus u can check twitter, Facebook, tumblr..February 24 was the 2nd time that we tried to TT #WhiteCollarForS6 after our 1st big try on February, 16th!!

    THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING WHITE COLLAR, THE SHOW, THE CAST, THE CREW, THE FANS… It is much appreciated. I am shocked that an organization as professional and upstanding as USA NETWORK is non-responsive! Fan invest in the shows that watch regularly, and a brief statement from them would show some respect for their followers. White Collar fans also watch other programing on that network… it would just be good business to show the same respect that they would expect.

    ¡Muchas gracias por apoyar la serie White Collar!

  • Julie Caffrey

    THANK YOU SO MUCH for supporting our fight to get this gorgeous show back!!!
    I just can’t understand how such a great show can be left in a limbo for renewal!! Unbelievable! The silence of the network is pure torture in addition…

  • D Baer

    Thank you for supporting White Collar!It is a fantastic show with the best cast ever! Its charming , witty, emotional, exciting and humorous. All the things you look for in a great show! WC has so much left to offer i cant believe they would even have to consider the renewal for Season 6! Anything you could do would be greaty appreciated!!!

  • Pamela

    Thank you for adding your support and voice to this beloved cause. We want to see a White Collar full season renewal. Classics never go out of style and this series is pure magic!

  • Deb24

    I really appreciate any help the fans of White Collar can get to end the suspense and frustration over whether we will get a S6. Most of us have invested 5 yrs in the characters and storyline. Now, there seems to be the very real possibility that all we will get from that investment is the unanswered question of whatever happened to Neal after he was kidnapped. The show and fans deserve a proper ending, and this cliffhanger is certainly not it!

  • penna.nomen

    Thanks for the support! White Collar is a fantastic show, and has much more to offer. It should live on for at least one more season.

  • Kim Rune

    You can not let the show end like this! Please.

  • Fanofgoodart

    I have always enjoyed your reviews of White Collar and I’m thankful to have your support for the cause of Season 6. I realize the decision maker don’t care about the fans’ heartbreak, it’s all about the moolah, so I’m going to appeal to logic, in case the TPTB read this. White Collar may not be the most popular in the coveted age range, but it is a critically acclaimed show with one of the most devoted fan base. If they leave this story unfinished, it could be a pretty negative mark for a network which has a pretty decent track record. It’s their creation after all, they need to respect it! The way USA network is going currently seems like self-destruction to me. Renewing WC could be a huge step in the right direction in the long run.

  • Simone

    THANK YOU for your support to our fight to get our fav show back on the screen for at least a season 6. There´s so much left to tell, it can´t end with an unsolved cliffhanger….White Collar deserves better! The cast, crew and fans deserve to know what´s going on and what´s going to come…

  • Miri

    Thank you for your support. It’s very much appreciated. I would be a crime to end such a wonderful show on such a bitter note.

  • Melanie

  • Yvonne

    Thanks for the support! This great and fabulous show may not end simply
