An international hit, but divided reviews

According to the data from the specialized site Flix Patrol, Double trap is very successful on Netflix, and is at the top of the most viewed series in many countries, and also in France.

If spectators approve of the program, this is not necessarily the case for the media. Thus, this original creation obtains a mixed score of 55 on Metacritic and an honorable 75% on Metacritic.

A difficult shoot

If Double trap is today an undeniable success, the production of this series was not a smooth ride . In an interview with the British site Metro, Michelle Keegan, the actress who plays Maya, returned to the filming of the scene where the heroine is opposite the Burkett family:

The script for this scene was 14 pages long, which I had never seen in my career. Generally it is between 1 and a half pages or even three pages maximum. There were many of us in this scene in question. We shot it several times, in chronological order, to make it logical and so we could play the right emotion.

We therefore had to break employment contracts, and even shoot at night to meet deadlines! It was a good thing for them, because according to the spectators, it is one of the most striking moments of this original creation.
