"Oh wait – wasn't she already dead?" Whispered The Witcher viewers as that ominous fourth episode of the series slowly crawled past them. Ah. AH! So that's how everything is organized – say it right away, dear Netflix series! And she does, albeit a few weeks late: From now on there is an official timeline that brings order to chaos.
Time is relative; Just as by the way, like the understanding of The Witcher viewers: Some have got the hang of the fourth episode of the series, others wonder until the end why the stories seem to have no real connection. Netflix 'The Witcher dispenses with one chronological order and instead shows several scenarios from different time periods, which all somehow only come together at the end. Which episode is playing when, you can in this official graphic understand at a glance:

If you let your Argus eye roam, one thing quickly becomes clear: yourself within the episodes the time levels are mixed. It is therefore always important to follow the story with an alert mind – or to look at the graphics from time to time. The The Witcher series takes place in a period of about 50 years, which is not particularly much for witchers or sorceresses: Both are significantly older than poor people like us. An example: Yennefer was actually born in 1173 and may be about ninety years old in episodes 7 and 8. Geralt is even older, just by the way.

By the way, it's not just The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that takes place after the events of the series; actually act all three The Witcher parts from CD Projekt Red based on the Netflix series and also after the books. That Henry Cavills Geralt looks significantly younger than that monster hunter in Wild Hunt is by no means nonsensical.
