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 »
In addition to the wonderfully detailed plots and excellent characters, Witchblade was a triumph in technical performance. The sets were consistently excellent. The crew took chances (and succeeded) with different styles of lighting and camera angles. Time lapse photography and stop action were used to good effect, and yet they did not jar the viewer. The soundtrack was recognized with award nominations, and rightly so. The dialog was extraordinarily well written, and stayed fresh throughout the series. Editing was tight and crisp; there were very few lags in tempo and yet was not too fast either. One of the best production teams in years! Witchblade is a real treat to watch!
