TNT just announced by press release the fate of the popular drama Claws, starring Niecy Nash.
Look forward to more hijinks from Desna and her pals!
And while that's good news, there is a caveat.
The hit drama will be wrapping up with a fourth and final season.
Since its launch in 2017, the series has won critical praise and a loyal fan following.
It's done very well with TV Fanatic readers, and it's no surprise.
Viewers have responded to the queenly rise of Desna Simms (Nash), who, alongside her crew of manicurists from the Nail Artisans of Manatee County salon, rises to power in the crime world to claim her share of cash and respect.
“For the past three seasons, Claws has handled delicate and culturally relevant themes like race, class, gender, age and sexual orientation with grace and humor via superb storytelling,” said Brett Weitz, General Manager for TNT, TBS, & truTV.
“Fans cherish the over-the-top Clawsian moments that have defined its run, and we will do them justice as we wrap up the tale of Desna and her crew.”
The series and cast have earned overwhelming critical praise, with the Los Angeles Times declaring “…Claws is the perfect show for our time.”
Vanity Fair labeled Claws the “perfect match for any summer day, while Vulture heralded the show as an “uproarious, emotionally moving ode to women’s quests for autonomy.”
And here at TV Fanatic, we said Claws is a "welcome blend of character study and thriller."
Claws stars Primetime Emmy nominee and Daytime Emmy winner Niecy Nash, Primetime Emmy winner Carrie Preston, Judy Reyes, Karrueche Tran, Jenn Lyon, Kevin Rankin, Jason Antoon.
Screen Actors Guild Award winner Harold Perrineau and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Dean Norris are also featured.
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), series creator Eliot Laurence (Welcome to Me), and showrunners Sharon Lee Watson (Chicago P.D., The Unit) and Emily Silver (The Flash Bones).
Claws is produced for TNT by Jones and McCormack's Le Train Train in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television.
What say you, Claws fanatics?
Are you sorry to see the show is coming to an end?
But are you also pleased it gets to go our on it's own terms?
