The dramedy will return for Season 2.
July 12, 2017
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.

I watched primarily because 1 million Christian Mom's (Only 55,000-65,000, if that) was boycotting it, If the RWNJ's where boycotting it why not give it try. I was only going to watch it an episode or two, but now I'm hooked. In the petition to boycott it, supposedly it was to be on HBO. That's what they were so upset, that a situation comedy that was supposed to be on HBO made it to regular cable.

I love this show. It's snappy writing walks the fine line between stereotype and comedy brilliantly.

I started watching this out of curiosity because it is supposed to take place in the city of Palmetto, which is just a few towns over from where I live. I wasn't too sure about it at first, but since there is nothing to watch on "Network TV" this summer besides reruns, reality & game shows, I watched the 2nd week as well, and now I'm hooked. I'm really starting to like all of the ladies in the cast. Niecy Nash & Kerry Preston are the standouts, but they're all good. I'm actually surprised by Karucche Tran as I originally thought she was kind of "stunt" casted, but she actually plays her part well. While I don't know the town of Palmetto well, I can tell you that there is quite a big divide between the" have & have nots" in the Sarasota/Bradenton/Lakewood Ranch area and I think this show does a great job of showing the determination of a good woman who Has had a hard life and who has done some wrong things mearly as a way "out" and to try to secure a little slice of the American pie for herself, autistic brother and loyal friends. Looking forward to (hopefully) seeing her succeed!

Great, great show. Gave me a new appreciation of Nicey Nash as an actor. I think there may be an Emmy nomination in her future.
It's a really good chick flick, showing the various dynamics of those women who live on the fringes of the crime world, and feel great female comaraderie between all the characters.
Nash's character is doing her best to keep the women in her shop together, doing what she can to take care of them, while trying to take care of herself and her brother, too.
It's just a really good show, and the ratings show it. 4th most popular show on cable in the golden demographic. Just great...

I barely made it through the first episode. This show is dreadful!

Can't tell whether to like or think it's a waste of time

Lots on misinformation in this article... ---"half-hour series" -- WRONG it's an hour long -- " lured into a life of crime" -- WRONG the series STARTS with them already being a front. There's no "luring" at all.

Nicey Nash is a walking talking stereotype. Loved her in Reno 911 but this character is horrible. And Dean Norris is pretty bad in his role here. I think this is grasping at straws to renew this.
