Matt Bomer, who was recently nominated for a Golden Globe and Critics Choice Award for his starring role in the gay historical drama series Fellow Travelers, is returning to one of the projects that made him a household name.

Series creator Jeff Eastin has revealed that he is rebooting his ever-popular show White Collar, and he's bringing back stars Matt Bomer, Tim DeKay, and Tiffany Thiessen.

"We're gonna reboot. I'm writing the script," Eastin said while on a panel with the show's stars at Variety's TV Fest.

"I'm in!" Bomer chimed in.

Bomer starred in the show as Neal Caffrey, a highly intelligent and skilled con artist who was captured by the FBI and made to work alongside the bureau, using his unique skills to help a team capture dangerous white collar criminals. The show ran for six successful seasons and has recently experienced a resurgence of viewers on Netflix.

"It's a fantastic script and it answers all the questions that one would have if you watch the show, " DeKay said. "And it would introduce the show to those who haven't seen it as well. Both edges of the sword are honored."

DeKay also said that the new reboot would "honor" star co-star Willie Garson, who passed away in 2021.

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

While the original show aired on USA, it seems the new reboot could be headed to Hulu.

"If you get to the finale with Neal walking in Paris, that was always the setup," Eastin said. "I always left it open, and as the years passed, it seemed more like a distant hope. But say thank you to Suits for starting this streaming trend. They were doing great and got people watching White Collar now on Netflix. That's doing really, really good. Off of that, it's like, 'Hey, let's do another one.'"
