“Look out Manatee County, these ladies are coming back for more!” Sarah Aubrey, TNT’s executive vice president of original programming, said in a statement. “These strong-willed, hilarious women represent the diverse voices this network is all about. Claws has certainly struck a chord with audiences and continues to attract new viewers each week.”
The series, which is currently airing its first season, stars Niecy Nash, Carrie Preston, Judy Reyes, Karrueche Tran, Jenn Lyon, Jack Kesy, Kevin Rankin, Jason Antoon with Harold Perrineau and Dean Norris. It follows the rise of five diverse and treacherous manicurists working at the Nail Artisan of Manatee County, where a lot more is going on besides silk wraps and pedicures.
Claws is executive-produced by Rashida Jones, Will McCormack, showrunner Janine Sherman Barrois and director Howard Deutch. Series creator Eliot Laurence serves as co-executive producer. Claws is produced by Jones and McCormack’s Le Train Train, in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television and Turner’s Studio T.
Claws airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on TNT. The season finale will air on August 13 and Season 2 will premiere in 2018.
