‘Claws’ Renewed For Season 2
TNT’s new comedy/crime/drama, “Claws,” is such a hit with viewers that the network has given the show a season 2 renewal halfway through it’s freshman run.
The series starring Niecy Nash, Carrie Preston, Judy Reyes, Karrueche Tran, Jenn Lyon, and Dean Norris follows the rise of five diverse and treacherous manicurists working at the Nail Artisan of Manatee County in Florida, where a lot more is going on besides silk wraps and pedicures.
Five episodes in, Claws — from producers Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, creator Eliot Laurence and showrunner Janine Sherman Barrois — has become the highest-rated TNT series launched since the cable network’s programming shift last year under the new regime. It also is the youngest-skewing TNT drama series. Ranking as cable’s No. 4 new drama with adults 18-49 for 2017-to-date and No. 4 cable drama in social engagement, Claws is reaching a multiplatform audience of 6.3 million viewers per episode across TNT’s linear, digital, mobile and on-demand platforms and averaging 1.1 million adults 18-49 in linear Live + 7.
The dramedy also has grown 27% in the demo since the premiere, with its fourth episode hitting Live+same day and Live+3 highs.
Congrats to the cast and crew! I love this show!
