-USA has renewed White Collar for a six-episode 6th season and many in the TV news industry are saying that it will be its last season. They are usually right so, I would start the grieving process now. I’ll let you know when the official word comes in that it will be the last season. The first 4 seasons are on Netflix. No word yet on on when they are filming or airing the “last” season. http://www.deadline.com/2014/03/usa-white-collar-six-episode-final-season/
-HBO is apparently planning on bring back the cult comedy The Comeback which stars Lisa Kudrow. It was only on for a season in 2005 but got nominated for three Emmy awards and HBO is doing an “Arrested Development” type deal and bringing it back now that it has a cult following. Deals are still in the works so there will be more on this when more news about it comes up. http://www.deadline.com/2014/03/comeback-lisa-kudrow-series-season-2-hbo-plan/
