Sadly, it is unlikely Duncan Lacroix will return to Outlander.

This is because his character, Murtagh Fraser was killed in battle.

If Lacroix is to return, it will most likely be in a flashback or a dream sequence.

Alternatively, Murtagh could reappear if time-travelling has anything to do with it.

However, fans of the Outlander books will know Murtagh in the show was on borrowed time, so his return is looking unlikely.

The character of Murtagh has been greatly expanded in the tv series from season three onwards.

In the second novel, Dragonfly in Amber, Murtagh was killed at the Battle of Culloden.

However, in the third series, it was revealed that Murtagh survived the Battle of Culloden and was imprisoned at Ardsmuir the entire time since the rebellion ended.

He was later reunited with Jamie in the American colonies but later decided to fight against the British Crown.

Sadly, Murtagh’s life came to a sudden end during the Battle of Alamance.

Murtagh was killed saving his godson Jamie’s life on the battlefield and died in his arms underneath a tree.

Speaking to Variety about his character’s death, Lacroix said: “The day we actually shot, me getting shot — I got very emotional and I didn’t expect that.

“It was hard saying goodbye to these guys that I’d worked with for six or seven years.”

He added: “It’s very fitting that his death is what leads to the spark that gives Jamie the determination to carry on with the war of Revolution.

“I think it makes perfect sense in terms of storytelling. It would have been nice to carry on and fight by Jamie’s side, but one of the joys of long-form storytelling is you get attached to these characters over a long period of time so that when one does die, it’s such a more emotive experience for the audience.

“I think it’s a lovely bit of drama to have.”
