When "White Collar" returns for its Season 5 premiere (Thurs., Oct. 17 at 9 p.m. ET on USA), things will look very different for our favorite semi-reformed conman Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer).
His partner and friend, Peter (Tim DeKay), is currently behind bars after taking the fall for a murder that Neal's biological father, James (Treat Williams), committed at the end of last season, leaving Neal with a new FBI handler in the form of "Common Law's" Warren Kole.
Naturally, Neal and his original partner in crime, Mozzie (Willie Garson), aren't prepared to leave Peter in jail, and in The Huffington Post's exclusive preview above, the two are hatching yet another elaborate scheme to free the disgraced agent.
Fans can also look forward to the return of Mark Sheppard, who will reprise his role of Curtis Hagen -- an art forger last seen in the show's pilot -- in seven episodes of Season 5. Richard Thomas ("The Americans"), Zachary Booth ("Damages") and Kara Hayward ("Moonrise Kingdom") are also set to appear in the second episode of Season 5.
"White Collar" returns Thurs., Oct. 17 at 9 p.m. ET on USA.
