Witchblade (2001-2002) is the TV adaptation of the Witchblade comic book series, by Marc Silvestri and the Top Cow team. The series ran for two seasons on TNT (24 episodes) and was cancelled because of Yancy Butler‘s alcoholism. She later went to rehab, at the Malibu Beach Recovery Center. We don’t know if her substance abuse problems are over now, but we wish her all the best.
Witchblade follows Sara Pezzini, a NYPD homicide detective who comes into possession of the Witchblade, a supernatural gauntlet which bonds with a female host and provides them with a variety of powers. She struggles to hone the powers of the Witchblade and fend off those with a nefarious interest in it, such as entrepreneur Kenneth Irons.
