I’m very excited to report the iconic Sheryl Lee Ralph has joined the season 2 cast of TNT’s “Claws” in a recurring role.

According to Deadline, Sheryl will play Matilde Ruval, the Haitian mother of Desna’s (Niecy Nash) love interest Gregory Ruval (Jean-Louis), a benevolent and caring mother to her son, with more going on than meets the eye.

Niecy shared her excitement about Sheryl joining the show via social media writing:

That’s my friend!!! She finna, she finna come through on #ClawsTNT like a beast! Wait for it ? @diva3482 ??

Filming for season 2 is currently underway. No word yet on a premiere date.
