Now, as we head into 2015, many other shows will saying goodbye as well, and the first four will be Justified, Parenthood, Parks and Recreation and Glee, which will all end sometime between January and May.

Tonight's finale left room for more stories of Peter and Neal and the stars of White Collar would be willing to return for a reunion movie if the opportunity arose.
Tim DeKay told TV Line, "I don’t know... I think in the past, I would have said, 'No, I don’t see that being a possibility,' but Veronica Mars kind of broke the mold with that. So I’m not going to say it would be impossible. I certainly would entertain that possibility, but right now, there aren’t any plans to have a movie."
Matt Bomer jokes that any decision to make a White Collar movie is “way above my pay grade.” However, if he was asked to do one, “I would definitely want to do it just to get the chance to work with Tim and Willie [Garson] and Marsha [Thomason] and Sharif [Atkins] and »

There were still directions to go, but I think the way they wrapped it up was really well done in the sense that they didn’t try to tie everything up into a nice bow."

He told TV Guide, "There are twists and there is a big shocking moment that is profound, but the fans will understand why that moment needed to be there."
It's a bitter-sweet occassion for DeKay but he notes, "If you are missing something, it's because you're thankful for it, and that's what I've been walking away with; realizing how thankful I am for these six seasons that we had. Because we knew it was the final season, we were fortunate to have some time to think about the value of it and how much meaning it had in our lives... It was a great ride."
