Time to dust off your best suit and fedora, as crime drama White Collar could be set to return.

Starring Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay, the series aired on USA Network for six seasons from 2009 to 2014.

Bomer starred as sharply dressed con artist Neal Caffrey who, while in prison, strikes a deal with FBI agent Peter Burke to help him catch dangerous white collar criminals.

On Wednesday (May 6), the show's creator Jeff Eastin tweeted: "Had a great convo with Matt Bomer. We have a plan to bring #WhiteCollar back.

"To quote Steve Harvey, 'The dream is free. The hustle is sold separately.' It's time to hustle."

Bomer responded to the tweet with a monocle emoji and a thumbs up.

Last month, Eastin tweeted that he was "working hard" to make a White Collar revival happen, while Bomer told him to "make it happen before I'm too old to wear a fedora".

Since the end of White Collar, Bomer has gone on to star in Ryan Murphy series American Horror Story: Freak Show and Hotel as well as directed an episode of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

Meanwhile, the cast of White Collar will reunite virtually later today (May 7) on the latest episode of Stars In The House.

Bomer, DeKay, Sharif Atkins (Clinton Jones), Hilarie Burton (Sara Ellis), Willie Garson (Mozzie), Marsha Thomason (Diana Berrigan) and Tiffani Thiessen (Elizabeth Burke) will all be taking part in support of The Trevor Project.
