The Witcher Timeline: Netflix's Interactive Map Makes Everything Clearer

Follow Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri's timelines, along with an overview of big events from The Witcher series.


The Witcher was one of Netflix's most popular releases in 2019 even though it was one of the streaming platform's later releases--it debuted on December 20. Based on the sprawling book series by Andrzej Sapkowski (rather than the popular game series,) the TV adaptation had a lot of material to work with--an almost unwieldy amount.

Our Witcher experts have tried their hand at explaining The Witcher timeline and even The Witcher book reading order, but now Netflix has stepped in to help newcomers to the series as well with their very own interactive map and timeline of the saga. They even have their own official dedicated page for it.

The timeline is split up into different tracks following key characters like Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri as well as a general overview of the history of the series' known universe, starting with the Conjunction of the Spheres, the cataclysmic event that allowed dangerous creatures into the World's dimension. Episodes of the show are also marked, as you can see above.

Clicking around on key points on the timeline narrows into specific locations on the map, providing a brief description of the event and even some neat visual effects like weather. You can also use the search bar in the top left corner to bring up information on key locations, characters, beasts, races, and events in The Witcher universe, which includes their own mini timelines and links to related pages you can browse via the sidebar. The Witcher show has a wealth of Easter eggs and references related to the games and novels, so there's a lot here to dig into if you're a fan, and plenty to learn if you're new to the series.

Season 2 of Netflix's The Witcher premieres in 2021--for what's coming this year, check out what's new on Netflix this week and all the Netflix original movies revealed for 2020 so far.
