“It is a little surreal,” White Collar star Tiffani Thiessen tells ETonline of the end of USA Network’s caper drama.
Though filming on the sixth and final season wrapped this summer in New York City, Tiffani admits it still hasn’t hit her yet that the series -- which stars Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay -- is done for good.

“It was a special show,” she says. “We had a great time in New York over the seven years that we did the show. It was a very special cast and crew, so it was definitely bittersweet. I’m sad to see it go, but I feel very fortunate to have been able to work with everybody for as long as we did.”
And don’t get her started on the last day of production.
“It was extremely emotional,” the 40-year-old actress says. “Anything ending that you enjoy… it’s sad. We had gotten really close and all of us were living in Los Angeles and had to move to New York during the shooting months, it became a family away from home. That will always stay.”

As for what fans can expect in the final installment, airing Thursday, Tiffani says longtime viewers will be satisfied.
“The audience will definitely be happy and pleased with how we ended the show,” she teases. “We always end the show in a big way every season, and it’s no different for the actual series finale.”
With the White Collar chapter closing, Tiffani already has another project coming in the new year, a cooking series on the Cooking Channel titled Dinner at Tiffani's.
