During the second season of the show, production was halted so that star Yancy Butler could seek treatment for alcoholism. When she completed the treatment, the show was cancelled. See more »
In the pilot, when Sara questions Kenneth Irons about Ian Nottingham, she shows him the newspaper photo she took from Jake McCartey's apartment with Ian in the background. The same photo Jake was seen looking at right after Sara had supposedly left with it. See more »
Witchblade was like a comet, briefly appearing in the sky and then gone before you knew it. The show was stellar. The writing, acting and production values were way off the curve for a television series. The complex relationships between the characters were fascinating and raised issues beyond the stories and the story arc itself was compelling. The climax of the first season was one of the most audacious moves I have seen in a story and I couldn't wait to see how they would play out the rewritten stories and then bam(!) the powers that be started messing with the show and then canceled it without resolving any of the questions. For something of that quality, critical acclaim and following to be canceled like that and then not be issued in DVD is mind boggling. I have not watched the network the show was on since then and still miss the series.
