The second season of crime dramedy Claws is set to premiere Sunday, June 10th at 9:00, TNT announced today. In addition, the entire first season will be made available on Hulu beginning May 11th.
From Eliot Laurence (The Big Gay Sketch Show), Claws follows five manicurists working at the Nail Artisans of Manatee County salon as they struggle to make ends meet. In order to give themselves the lives they’ve been previously denied, they begin laundering money for the head of the Husser crime family, only to quickly get in deeper than any of them could’ve imagined.
Season two picks up with the Husser family under the thumb of the Russians, with Desna and the rest of her girls continuing to launder money at the Nail Artisans – only this time for Riva and company. While Virginia finds herself pregnant, something that will make a stressful life that much moreso, Desna has no idea that new love interest Gregory is involved in organized crime, something that could throw a major wrench in her plan to overthrow the Russians and gain her autonomy back.
Averaging 5.4 million viewers across platforms, growing 40% in-season, and finishing season one as one of the top 5 new cable dramas of 2017, Claws stars Niecy Nash (Getting On), Carrie Preston (The Good Wife), Judy Reyes (Devious Maids), Karrueche Tran (The Nice Guys), and Jenn Lyon (Justified). The series is part of a revamped TNT drama slate focusing on edgier fare, including Animal Kingdom, The Alienist, and Good Behavior.
