One of the most thrilling and comforting police procedurals will be making its way back to Netflix in April 2024, and it's the perfect time for fans to dive headfirst into a rewatch. The USA Network's White Collar returns to Netflix in time to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its ending in 2014. Can you believe it's been a decade since we said goodbye to Neal Caffrey?!

News of White Collar's Netflix comeback arrived in December 2023, when Netflix announced it had licensed a number of fan-favorite shows owned by Disney. The series last streamed on Netflix between 2014 and 2018, making its return all the more exciting (even though it's still available to watch on both Hulu and Amazon Freevee). Now it will call Netflix home, too, for 18 months.

In the series, Matt Bomer stars as the intimidatingly handsome and conniving con artist Neal Caffrey. He's a master thief and forger and a target of the FBI. When he finally can't outrun the law, he ends up working as a criminal informant and working alongside Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) to put his skills to use and catch white collar criminals like himself. But can Neal really change his ways?

White Collar release time on Netflix

All six seasons of the USA Network's White Collar begin streaming on Netflix on Monday, April 1. Like most new releases on Netflix, the series will be released at 12 a.m. PDT, which translates to 3 a.m. EDT. That's pretty late to stay up to start your journey with Neal and Peter, but if you're a night owl and want to get a head start, the series will drop the second the calendar turns to April Fool's Day.

Prior to the show's planned return to Netflix, Bomer opened up about "legitimate talk" about the series possibly returning for a revival of some sort. Of course, a resurgence thanks to becoming widely available and earning the still vital "Netflix bump" could likely push those talks in the right direction. I mean, look what happened with Suits last year and its upcoming return to TV.

After fellow USA Network favorite Suits took off on Netflix, the streamer has been steadily adding more and more of the cable network's classics, with Royal Pains and Monk following shortly after the Suits renaissance winded down. While neither of those shows reached similar heights, they both saw their streaming viewership rise, and White Collar looks primed to take the torch next.

Beyond Netflix's influence on the renewed interest in USA's brand of blue sky content, the streaming service has also been responsible for medical dramas New Amsterdam and The Resident finding a second wind in streaming after their respective endings on linear television. Like Suits, NBC has also started developing a New Amsterdam follow-up series following its Netflix bump, while Fox's The Resident has taken up residence in the top 10.

Fingers crossed for White Collar to strike a similar chord with audiences upon its return to Netflix at the top of April. The series also stars Saved by the Bell and Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Tiffani Thiessen as Peter's wife Elizabeth, Sex and the City favorite Willie Garson as Neal's confidante Mozzie, and a number of supporting players like Marsha Thomason, Sharif Atkins, Hilarie Burton, and Natalie Morales. Make sure to catch up with the crew and solve all the cases!
