Season one was based on Andrzej Sapkowski’ The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny novels, which are collections of short stories that precede the main Witcher saga.
The show’s first season follows Geralt of Rivia, Crown Princess Ciri, and the sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg at different points of time, exploring formative events that shaped their characters, before eventually merging into a single timeline detailing the invaders from Nilfgaard, culminating at the battle for Sodden Hill. -Wiki
