USA Network orders 16 episodes for the upcoming season 4 of the Matthew Bomer-starring drama series, while FOX renews its workplace comedy series for a 13-episode season 2.
After renewing "Suits", USA Network has now given a greenlight to another new season of "White Collar". With this renewal, the procedural drama series starring Matthew Bomer will return for a fourth season with 16 episodes. The production is set to start in 2012.
"We're thrilled to offer our viewers another season that promises some of the best writing in television, unexpected twists and generous helpings of America's favorite bromance," the network's co-presidents Jeff Wachtel and Chris McCumber said on Thursday, August 25.
Previously, "In Plain Sight" had been picked up for a fifth season, which will also serve as the last season for the Mary McCormack-starring crime series. Meanwhile, USA has not announced the fate of freshman "Necessary Roughness".
In another renewal news, FOX has confirmed to bring back "Breaking In" for a sophomore season with 13 new episodes which will air next year. " 'Breaking In' is a creatively vibrant and wildly adventurous comedy," so the network's Entertainment President Kevin Reilly said in a statement about the Christian Slater-starring comedy series.
"We are looking forward to bringing it back for a second season and continuing our relationship with this incredibly talented cast and these fantastic creators - Adam Goldberg and Seth Gordon," he added. "We can't wait to see where they take these characters next year."
FOX is additionally set to pick up a new single-camera comedy from Goldberg. Co-produced by Adam Sandler's Happy Madison, the project is described by The Hollywood Reporter as an "autobiographical in tone with a focus on his 1980s upbringing."
