Outlander returns to television screens in early 2020 but it will see the Fraser family struggle as the Revolutionary War approaches and they are forced to make some tough decisions. In the season four finale, Jamie (played by Sam Heughan) was issued a letter demanding he catch Murtagh Fitzgibbons (Duncan Lacroix) for the North Carolina Governor – will he do as he’s told?
Jamie and Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) were given land in season four from the Governor but under the understanding they have pledged their allegiance to him.
Now, Jamie has found himself in a difficult position as the Governor has demanded he assemble and lead a militia to put down the regulators and kill their leader Murtagh.
Fans know the highlander would never turn against someone he loves and trusts as much as Murtagh.
But if he does not follow the Governor’s orders, he could find himself without his land and home.

It seems unlikely Jocasta’s head could be turned by another but if Murtagh was killed, she could find love with another.
Following Maria’s comment at New York Comic Con last month, fans believe she could marry Duncan Innes instead.
Maria teased: “Well, I definitely have relationships in season five, I can’t actually tell you who they’re with.”
But she heavily hinted it wouldn’t be Murtagh she weds.
