Keri Russell opened up Wednesday to TODAY show anchors Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie about her hit FX show The Americans, which returns for a second season tonight.

Apparently, Russell has been pretty hush-hush in recent weeks about the up-coming season, but the morning show anchors used some interesting techniques to get the info out of the former Disney mouseketeer.

Mocking her character on the show, Guthrie held up a desk lamp into the Felicity star's face while Lauer interrogated her.

"You're a KGB spy!" said Lauer. "You're supposed to be able to keep a secret, but I need some intel here."

Giggling throughout the mock interrogation, Russell said this season would be even hotter than last season. Lauer asked if the sex scenes — some of the steamiest on television — were going to get steamier.

"Yes, there are some incriminating scenes tonight," said Russell.

Russell plays a Soviet spy fake-married with fake children to another Soviet spy (Matthew Rhys) in 1980s America. The spies later fall for one another.
