Natasha Lyonne was not at liberty to say whether she’d be back for Orange Is the New Black season 4. As she told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show, “it’s a very high-stakes situation.” The good news is, she was able to get through her promotional rounds for other projects without revealing anything. The bad news is, she then slipped a big one to an airport TSA agent.
“I get through this whole day. Gangbusters, I did not reveal a single spoiler,” Lyonne recalled about dodging questions from the press (even giving EW a shout-out). However, things took a turn when she was at an airport to go visit her boyfriend.
“A nice, lovely TSA agent said, ‘Ah, I’m such a big fan of the show. Are you coming back this year?’ And, without looking, without blinking, I said, ‘Yes, of course.’ It was such a weird moment.” Nothing came of it, but it didn’t stop the actress from going into panic mode.

Season 4 of Orange Is the New Black is now available on Netflix.
