TNT's Claws is back, and the fierce women of the Nail Artisans of Manatee County are now under new management – the Russians. Niecy Nash (Getting On, The Soul Man), Carrie Preston (True Blood), Judy Reyes (Scrubs), Karrueche Tran (The Nice Guys), Jenn Lyon (Justified), Jack Kesy (The Strain), Kevin Rankin (Dallas Buyers Club, Friday Night Lights), Jason Antoon (Famous in Love), Jimmy Jean-Louis (Heroes), Suleka Mathew (Men in Trees), Harold Perrineau (Lost, Oz) and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) star in the hour-long dramedy series, which returns for season two across TNT's television, mobile and digital platformson Sunday, June 10, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).

Claws follows the rise of five treacherous manicurists working at the Nail Artisans of Manatee County salon, where there is a lot more going on than silk wraps and pedicures. At the center of this diverse group is salon owner Desna (Nash), who works alongside her salon staff to launder money from Suncoast Rejuvenation, a barely legal pain clinic operated by the Dixie Mafia.  While it has always been Desna’s mission to break free of the redneck syndicate and become her own boss, last season saw Desna trade one crime boss for another as the Russian mob took control of both the pain clinic and the salon. With new Russian management comes new problems for the women to navigate.

A multiplatform reach of 5.4 million viewers per episode vaulted Claws into the top 5 new cable dramas of 2017. Last season, the series secured strong momentum with in-season growth of more than 40% and earned the title of the #1 cable series on VOD during its run.

Claws is executive-produced by Rashida Jones (Angie Tribeca, Toy Story 4, Celeste and Jesse Forever, A to Z,), Will McCormack (Toy Story 4, Celeste and Jesse Forever, A to Z), Janine Sherman Barrois (ER, Criminal Minds), who also serves as showrunner, and Eliot Laurence (Welcome to Me), who created the series. Claws is produced for TNT by Jones and McCormack's Le Train Train, in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television and Turner's Studio T.

The complete first season of Claws will become available to stream exclusively on Hulu on May 11th, just in time for viewers to catch up on all episodes ahead of the season two premiere.
