Hold Tight, based on a novel of the same name written by Harlan Coben, dropped on Netflix on the 22nd of April and it has been in Netflix’s top 10 most-streamed non-English TV series. Only in the week between 25 April and 1 May, the show was watched for a total of 25.12 million hours. The amount of success doesn’t mean that we are going to see a Season 2 for Hold Tight because the series was designed as a mini-series with only 6 episodes.
Although the show received some good ratings, it didn’t get positive reviews from critics who usually said that the story of the series was rushed off, and the script and the acting were mediocre at best. Hold Tight currently has a 6.1 rating on IMDb and an 18% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Let’s get to know the Hold Tight cast members who are accused of delivering bad performances.
In the series, a teenager named Adam gets lost right after one of his friends is found dead. So, his mother Anna starts to search for his son.
