NEW YORK (AP) — Laura Prepon’s giving away the cliffhanger from the third season finale of “Orange is the New Black” — or is she?

Spoiler alert: Prepon’s character Alex Vause is returning to the Netflix series next season. But beyond that, well, fans will just need to hop on board the streaming train when the fourth season hits in 2016.

“We can’t really say too much,” Prepon said Tuesday at a New York screening of the season finale. “She’s dealing with a lot this year.”

The drug-dealing Litchfield Penitentiary inmate and complicated lover of the show’s lead character Piper Chapman (played by Taylor Schilling), is last seen facing down a drug business associate in the third season’s finale. It’s unknown whether Vause will make it out alive or if she is going to portray herself in the prison show’s many flashbacks.

Prepon, who dropped an earlier hint that Vause would be back in a June Instagram post, said Vause being paranoid and emotional during the third season allowed fans to see another side of her.

“Alex will always be very, very cool,” Prepon said. “It’s just always nice when you can see that side to a person.”

Prepon said the Emmy Award-winning show helped her grow as an actress, and she praised writer Jenji Kohan.

“The (writers) really push us out of our comfort zones,” Prepon said. “When there is this awesome scene that you have to be raw and you have to be vulnerable . I know that my amazing co-stars are going to be there to support me, and it really is this incredible sisterhood.”
