The fifth run of Outlander sees Claire (played by Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) continue to build their lives in North Carolina with their daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton), her husband Roger (Richard Rankin) and their grandson Jemmy. But the Revolutionary War is fast approaching and Jamie has been tasked with hunting down his uncle Murtagh Fitzgibbons (Duncan Lacroix) so the peace won’t last for long. Could Jamie and his family be in danger?
Speaking about what season five holds, Sam teased: “There are episodes that are kind of individual, and they have other storylines, but the greater objective of the season is that they know this war is coming, and Jamie’s on the wrong side.
“He’s doing it because he needs to provide for people.
“So he’s really stuck between a rock and a historic hard place.”
Sam went on to add to Oprah magazine: “I think that’s going to probably culminate not this season, but in the next season.”

So it looks likely Jamie will survive the Revolutionary War and make it to season six of the series based on Diana Gabaldon’s books.
There had been some concern he would die when fans spotted the Big House in the trailer - die-hard viewers know this is where Jamie and Claire are set to perish when their home goes up in flames.
Fortunately, it seems if Jamie has struggles in the latest season and the next, he still has plenty of time left on the show.
However, his uncle Murtagh may not be so fortunate
