The Witcher Season 2 Story Details
The Witcher strictly based on Sapkowski’s books, and season 1 concludes with the Battle of Sodden Hill, which marks the end of the first Northern War. The first season based on the first two collections of Witcher stories: The Sword of Destiny and The Last Wish, and also partly on the first novel, Blood of Elves. Notably, season one split into three different timelines: Yennefer’s, Geralt’s, and Ciri’s. Geralt and Yennefer’s paths cross twice in the first season, and Geralt and Ciri finally meet each other at the end, where the three timelines converge.
