Each of this show’s four seasons has 10 half-hour shows. On December 13, 2016, shooting for the first season began. As soon as the first season ended, the show was picked up for a second season, which came out on June 10, 2018. The third season of Claws came out on June 9, 2019, which was a year after the second season. It was picked up for a fourth season right away. But because of the pandemic, the company that made it had to stop making it. When shooting started back up in 2020, the show didn’t come out until December 19, 2021.
Claws Season 5 Renewal Status
Before we talk about Season 5, it’s important to recognize how well Season 4 did. With good reviews and a growing number of fans, the show’s future looked bright. It combines drama, comedy, and crime in a way that makes people want to see more. But in the world of TV, this doesn’t mean anything; what counts is how much money it brings in for the network. Because of this, TNT says that season 4 will be the last and cancels Claws.
Claws Season 5 Release Date
Since the show hasn’t been announced, we don’t know when it will come out. On February 6, 2022, the last season of the show was over. Weitz said this about the series: “The Claws ending is as satisfying as a series ending can get. It’s precisely what Desna and her band would love you to see: a little bit of crazy, a lot of fun, and an exciting end to a great series run.”
Every character’s story has been nicely wrapped up by the end of the series. The show gives the people what they want. Even though many people still think that the director pulled the plug after four seasons, it was meant to be.
Claws Seasons Recap
The story of Claws is about the five hardworking and different manicurists who run the Nail Artisans studio. Desna owns the spa in Manatee County, Florida, which is in the state of Florida. Jennifer, Ann, Virginia, and Polly are also on staff at the studio. Jennifer is her best friend. Ann keeps the shop safe, and Polly, who used to be in jail, soon gets tired of her job.
Desna takes care of her mentally unstable brother Dean as well as running the shop. Jennifer, on the other hand, has two kids from a former union. When the five of them have trouble making ends meet, they join a group of criminals. Soon, they will start washing money for a pain clinic in the area. When Uncle Daddy, the cruel head of the Husser crime family, keeps some of Desna’s money from her, she puts it on Roller, her shady redneck boyfriend. Uncle Daddy also took him in as his own son.
When Bryce, Jennifer’s ex-husband and an ambulance driver, comes back into the picture, things are just as sketchy as they were before. Desna figures out that Roller has been deceiving on her with Virginia and tries to kill him. Later in the show, it becomes clear why Desna is working so hard to make an improved future for herself and her brother. Along with Desna, other characters’ secrets are also slowly revealed.

Claws Season 5 Plot
The claws Desna went back to moving money in Season 4, and the nail shop became a surprising hub for illegal activity. In the season end, nail polish boxes were used to hide Oxy, which made for a tense cliffhanger. Since the show has ended, we don’t know what will happen in Season 5, but the idea of a new start or a continuation from where the fourth season ended gets us excited. If the show comes back, it’s likely to have more of the shocking plot changes and interesting stories that made it popular in the first place.
On the website rotten tomatoes, the average Tomatometer score for Claws is 90%, and the average viewer score is 74%.IMDb gives it a score of 7.3/10, and the crowd gives it a score of 4.6/5.
