The long-awaited soundtrack to new Netflix fantasy thriller The Witcher has finally arrived onto streaming services – listen to it below.
The 55-song soundtrack runs for over three hours, and features fan favourite song ‘Toss A Coin To Your Witcher’.
The Henry-Cavill starring drama, which has been hailed as the spiritual successor to Game of Thrones, arrived on Netflix in December. Its soundtrack is composed by Sonya Belousova and Giona Ostinelli.
A second series of The Witcher has already been ordered, and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich has said that there could be an unlimited amount of seasons of the show.
Asked by NME how many series she’s hoping to make, Schmidt Hissrich replied: “I’ve been quoted saying seven and 20, but basically, I will write this series as long as one: the source material holds out. But two: as long as audiences are interested in watching it.”
As well as season two of the Netflix series, a new anime film based on the Witcher books is also in the works, as revealed this week. The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf will come from the team behind The Legend Of Korra.
In a review of the first season of The Witcher, NME‘s Alex Flood called the show a “bloodthirsty, sex-obsessed fantasy to fill the Game Of Thrones-sized hole in your life.”
“Fantasy setting, axe-swinging bloodbaths, mythical monsters, more nudity than a Love Island wrap party, tick-tick-tick-ta-hick,” the review continues. “There’s a lighter, more cartoonish tone, as there would be when there’s so many exotic fantasy monsters and witchcraft flying about, and a strong comedy thread too, particularly in the form of Joey Batey’s fame-hungry minstrel Jaskier.”
