Most rear brake-shoe design take some time to adjust than disc brakes...
If you have a special brake adjustment tool that your local automotive store sells, get this tool and pull out the rubber grommet plug, insert the brake adjustment tool until you 'feel' or hear the sound of 'skipping' on the brake self-adjuster spool inside as you wiggle /adjust the tool inside....(push it inside to get a firm feel that you can 'spin' it)
Try to push the tool downward or upward to check if that'll spin the brake self-adjuster part smaller to allow the brake shoes to 'shrink' which should allow you easy removal of the rear brake drum as you wiggle it out.
Be sure not to breathe in toxic brake dust upon successful brake drum removal.

SOURCE: REAR BRAKE DRUM WON,T COME OFF
Make sure the wheel turns and adjuster backed off . If you can see a Countersunk screw in the face of the hub remove it. If hitting it fails , usually you can see two small 8,10 or 12 mm holes in the face of the hub . Find the correct bolts and screw them into the the hub , it should force the the drum to pop off . What car is it , and does it have tapered wheel bearings on the outside of the drum?

there should be several springs. first there are (2) real short springs that hold the shoes to the dust cover/back plate. they go in the center of each shoe. then there is a short spring that goes at the bottom where the adjuster is located. there should be a hole in each shoe. finally there is a long spring that goes at the top where your brake cylinder is and this is what gets attched last after your emergancy brake levers are placed between the shoes .

1.Release parking brake.
2. Apply the brake pedal at least 10 times.
3. Raise and support vehicle with jack stands, etc.
4. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
5. Remove the lock ring and the caulking nut from the spindle.
6. Remove the drum from the spindle.
Note: Pull the drum straight off the spindle.
There is an opening on the inside for adjusting the tension,It's under a rubber cap.You can use a screw driver to make the adjustment
