TNT announced Wednesday that it has renewed its new original drama series “Claws” for a second season, according to a news release.

“Look out Manatee County, these ladies are coming back for more,” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT in the release. “These strong-willed, hilarious women represent the diverse voices this network is all about. ‘Claws’ has certainly struck a chord with audiences and continues to attract new viewers each week.”

“Claws” follows the rise of five diverse and treacherous manicurists working at the fictional Nail Artisans of Manatee County, and stars Niecy Nash, Carrie Preston, Judy Reyes, Karrueche Tran and Jenn Lyon. The finale of the series’ first season will be on Aug. 13. The second season is set to air sometime in 2018. The show, while set in Palmetto on the Gulf Coast of Florida, is actually filmed mostly in New Orleans.

According to the release, “Claws” is currently reaching 6.3 million viewers per episode across TNT’s linear, digital, mobile and on-demand platforms. The series, which has resonated with critics and viewers alike, ranks as cable’s No. 4 new drama with adults 18-49 for 2017 to date and draws the youngest audience of any TNT drama.
