Confused about time jump

If this time jump is supposed to cut the taping schedule from 6 months to 2-3 then how can it be exactly a year later?   Are they going to continue to speed up time again?   What's the point of making it exactly one year later?   This would mean they would still be taping Christmas in summer etc.  Is the idea that they scrapped a bunch of crappy stories and just skipped ahead?   I like the idea of the time jump and the mysteries unfolding over the course of many months.   I hope they don't rush to explain everything too quickly.
