Burton, 28, has recurred on the USA caper since the beginning of Season 2. Burton plays Sara Ellis, an insurance company investigator who once testified against Neal (Matt Bomer). Although she looks at Neal as the thief who got away, she has since begun helping him and Peter (Tim DeKay) in their investigation of the mysterious music box.
The news was first reported by TVLine.com.
White Collar was renewed for Season 3 in September and currently airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on USA.
