The people behind Netflix’s “The Witcher” also spent long nights with the show’s earworm of an anthem, “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher,” stuck in their heads.
“The sound team, we’d come back in the morning and everyone would be like, ‘Oh, that (‘Toss a Coin’) was stuck in my head all night,'” series creator Lauren Schmidt Hissrich told reporters at a Television Critics Association panel Thursday. She expects more hit songs from the show’s second season, due Dec. 17. Musician Jaskier (Joey Batey) “is back in Season 2, and we have some good songs,” she said.
“The Witcher” returns about two years after the fantasy epic – starring Henry Cavill as a monster-hunting warrior in a fictional world whose path intersects with a sorceress and a princess – premiered to great success. Like so many other TV series, the second season was delayed by the the COVID-19 pandemic, although Schmidt Hissrich says that actually helped the writers make Season 2 better.
