If You're Feeling Confused About All of 'The Witcher' Time Jumps, You're Not the Only One


When Netflix announced that it was producing a series based on the video games that were based on Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski's work, fans were excited. The Witcher 3 has sold over 25 million copies to date and is one of CD Projekt Red's most successful titles. The series' titular hero, Geralt, also got the star treatment when Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill nabbed the role — so it has all the makings of a compelling new show.

But The Witcher viewers are confused by the time jumps.

But then it dropped, and there were time jumps. Time jumps that confused some viewers. Time jumps that had people scratching their heads and saying, "But wait, didn't that just happen?" Despite the fact that The Witcher's first season is only comprised of eight episodes, the writers went heavy and hard ridiculously fast. Magical elements were a huge part of the plot from the get-go, and the showrunners decided to drop a bomb on viewers with regards to Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri's storylines.
