After its release on December 20, Netflix's The Witcher has quickly gone on to become one of the highest-rated shows on Netflix and has bagged an IMBD rating of 8.8. While fans have been raving about Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia and the amazing sword fights, they have also become kind of obsessed with the song Toss a Coin to Your Witcher.
The song appears at the end of episode 2 and is played by the bard Jaskier who tags along with Geralt so that he can immortalize Geralt's deeds through song. The song has already been uploaded on SoundCloud where it has been streamed 184,000 times and on YouTube where the song has already been viewed two million times.
While fans have been buzzing about it and loving the show, critics have been quite harsh with the series, with one critic even admitting that he found The Witcher so boring that he skipped a few episodes. But that doesn't seem to have fazed showrunner Lauren Hissrich who said that she does not care about 'professional critics' but about the opinions of real fans who have binged watched the series in a day.
Take a look at some fan reactions about the Internet's latest obsession:

While there is no release date for season two just yet but Lauren Hissrich already confirmed that there will be a second season. The renewal for a second season was announced on November 13, 2019, which is a full five weeks before The Witcher season one even dropped, meaning that even before its worldwide release Netflix already predicted that The Witcher would be a smashing hit with the fans.
According to sources, filming and production for season two is scheduled to begin in early 2020 with a release date sometime in 2021. It has also been confirmed that Henry Cavil will be returning as Geralt of Rivia, with Anya Chalotra who plays the sorceress Yennefer and Freya Allan as Cirilla.
