Outlander season 5: Jamie Fraser will take on ‘gut-wrenching’ stories alongside Claire
Outlander’s fifth season is just around the corner, and fans are ecstatic about the return of the show’s main couple, Jamie Fraser (played by Sam Heughan), and Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe). The show’s foundation has been built on the intense relationship between the pair, and it is sure to return in the upcoming episodes.
Season five is going to introduce a number of tough situations, however, not least of all the American Revolutionary War.
Jamie will be getting involved in the war to protect his family, and indeed his property of Fraser’s Ridge.
But it looks like viewers could see the worst happen, as revealed by the showrunner.
War is a horrific thing, and although Jamie has survived it in the past, he was a lot younger.

Now, as an older man, another war could be the end of him.
And showrunner Matthew B. Roberts has spoken out about what dreadful things are on their way to the Frasers.
Speaking to TV Line, Roberts explained: “We’ve tried to get back to the basics.
“Emotional stories [that bring] great highs and gut-wrenching lows.”
Highs are expected in the show with the continuing farm life for the Frasers – but fans could become a little worried about the promised “gut-wrenching lows”.
Could the impending war spell a bad time for Jamie and indeed the rest of the Frasers?
Roberts concluded with another harrowing hint, adding: “[Fans will have] both good cries and bad cries.”
Later in the interview Roger MacKenzie star Richard Rankin spoke out about his place in the upcoming war.

During this time, Roger takes some shooting lessons from his wife to get him up to speed.
Richard went on to say his character goes on a “journey” in the new season.
