The USA Network is pulling the plug on one of it’s signature series, as White Collar is set to end its run on the network after six seasons on the air. The final season will consist of six episodes, although nothing has yet been made official. Word of the show’s cancellation comes from Deadline, who report that the series’ six-episode end off is something of a compromise between a series finale movie and a full order season.
One of USA Network‘s signature series, drama White Collar, is poised to wrap its run with a six-episode sixth and final season. There is no official word yet, but I hear the network and series producer Fox TV Studios are finalizing the deal. The size of the order looks like a compromise between a movie/mini-series conclusion USA had been considering and a full-length season, sought by producer FfvS.
White Collar hasn’t been a groundbreaking series by any stretch and it’s not even one of the most watched shows on television but it’s still up there and has a loyal following. The series coming to an end will bum fans out, but at least USA has planned ahead and the series will see a fitting conclusion rather than being lopped off with more story left to tell.
