TNT announced today that Claws has been renewed for a second season. The new comedic drama, which premiered last month, has been garnering a generally positive reception through the halfway point of its 10-episode summer run.
Through its first five weeks, the half-hour series ranks as the #4 new drama on cable television among adults 18-49 for 2017. Its multiplatform audience tallies an average of 6.3 million viewers per episode, with 1.1 million of those in the adults 18-49 demographic.
Claws stars Niecy Nash as the owner of the Nail Artisan salon in South Florida, where the five diverse manicurists who work there are doing a lot more than just pedicures. Trying to make ends meet in a tough economy, the women are lured into a life of crime when they start laundering money from illegal pain medication for a nearby pain clinic.
Look for Season 2 of Claws in 2018.
