USA’s White Collar will have a “shocking” ending, promises network president Chris McCumber. Also, the home stretch now has a premiere date: The sixth season closer will debut Thursday, Nov. 6. USA has given the show six episodes to wrap it up.

“From its inception, White Collar captured a massive and loyal following, in large part due to the incredible on-screen chemistry between [Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay], who deserve credit for one of the most brilliantly performed ‘bromances’ in all of television,” McCumber said. “The series also benefited from smart writing and an extraordinarily talented supporting cast, who helped it become a fan favorite crime drama for five straight years. This season will not disappoint, with an exciting and shocking ending that fans will never forget.”

“Saying goodbye to White Collar—and Neal and Peter—after six successful seasons is incredibly difficult, but I couldn’t be prouder of what our entire team has accomplished over the last six years,” added creator Jeff Eastin, who is now focusing on Graceland. “I’m grateful to FTVS and USA for giving the show a great home, and I can’t wait for fans to see the twists, surprises and phenomenal performances our final season has in store for them.”

The final run will be paired with the second half of the fifth season of Covert Affairs. Here’s some official description of the final six episodes: “The thrilling final season picks up on last season’s cliffhanger, when Caffrey has disappeared, sans ankle bracelet.  Personal transitions and returning enemies complicate things when Caffrey and Agent Burke are pitted against the most sought-after network of criminals in the world, the Pink Panthers. With the help of Mozzie (Garson) and FBI agents, Barrigan and Jones, they will attempt to infiltrate and bring down the infamous criminal ring. Guest stars for the final bow include Ross McCall, Gavin Lee, Bridget Regan, Toby Leonard Moore, Paloma Guzman, Michael Potts, Isaach de Bankole and Diahann Carroll.”
