The Nail Artisans of Manatee County are back and ready to manicure for another show run. TNT has released a first look promo for season 3 premiere date for Claws which will debut on June 9 at 9 pm ET/PT. The hit series follows the rise of five treacherous manicurists working at the Nail Artisans of Manatee County salon, who all have deep connections to the underworld. The nail salon is a cover for all kinds of activity.
The popular, cable drama that stars Niecy Nash, Carrie Preston, Judy Reyes, Karrueche Tran, Jenn Lyon, Jack Kesy, Kevin Rankin, Jason Antoon, Evan Daigle, Suleka Mathew, Harold Perrineau, and Dean Norris.
According to the synopsis of the third season: When we last left these fabulous gaudy ladies in season two, Desna (Nash) dodged an ill-fated marriage to the sinister Dr. Ruval (Jimmy Jean-Louis), took out her Russian crime boss, Zlata (Franka Potente), and inherited a new casino. The celebrations ended with a massive cliffhanger when Virginia (Tran) took a bullet for Desna as they were about to survey their new business venture.
In season three, the ladies will quickly learn that the stakes couldn’t be higher in the casino world, and Desna will take a gamble as she enters into business with a sinister couple, Mac (guest star Michael Horse) and Melba (guest star Rebecca Creskoff).
Nash and Preston they each direct an episode this season. Claws is executive produced by Rashida Jones, Will McCormack, Janine Sherman Barrois, who also serves as showrunner, and Eliot Laurence, who created the series.
Setting the scene for the third season, in the trailer Desna says, “I didn’t choose the crime life, but I’m gonna win. We are goin’ run Florida. We are more than just nail artists, maybe it’s time we own it. There is so much money to be made.”
