The story revolves around identical twin sisters who grew up in a happy family in spite of being poor and whose lives will be intertwined because of love, identity, deceit, ambition, and wealth when destiny teasingly compels to separate their lives.
Season 1 (2015)
Doble Kara began with the story of a poverty-stricken Laura (Mylene Dizon) who had no means of acquiring money for her dying mother's medical treatment. Laura, who had no choice but to resort to prostitution, was impregnated by a married man named Antonio Dela Rosa (Allen Dizon). Despite what happened, Ishmael (Ariel Rivera) who has shown Laura true love, marries her, and steps in as the father of her two unborn children. On the same day of Laura's childbearing, Lucille (Carmina Villarroel), Antonio's wife, also gives birth to their child, Sofia. However, the couple's daughter died shortly after delivery in consequence of her premature birth.
As Antonio and Lucille mourn their daughter’s early passing, Laura and Ishmael, together with godmother Itoy (John Lapus) and his brother Andy (Anjo Damiles), enjoyed and lived a happy life with their twin daughters, Kara and Sara (Julia Montes), regardless of being poor. The twins' differences become apparent when Kara excels in academics while Sara struggles, thus made Sara switched identities with Kara to make Sara pass her academics. However, when Kara was diagnosed with leukemia, Sara became jealous of the extra attention that was given to her sister. With limited means, their parents were forced to separate the two and give up Kara to her biological father Antonio, who had the means to provide better treatment for her disease. With Kara finally aware of her true origins, Laura and Ishmael decide to keep their secret from Sara and Antonio, in fear of losing Sara as well.
Antonio brings Kara unto the Dela Rosa foundation where she meets Lucille. Disheartened by Kara's ailment, Lucille began to espouse a mother-daughter relationship with Kara as she began to consider her as her own daughter. Unbeknownst to her of the existing relationship between her husband and Kara, Lucille adopts and brings Kara abroad where she recovers from her illness.
The two siblings, despite sharing the same appearance, grew up living two separate lives and exhibiIng contrasting personalities. Sara, who has an extreme fondness of beauty contests and pageants, grew up ambitiously towards her own life and dream, becoming more self-centered and egoistic while fostering a street-smart attitude. While Kara grew up to be charming, sweet, mellow, very sophisticated, and artistically inclined.
After fourteen years had passed, a grown-up Kara returns to her hometown and, against her father's wishes, resolves to find her family. On the other hand, unaware of her sister's whereabouts, Sara continues to pursue her dream of becoming rich and famous, and meets Edward (Edgar Allan Guzman). The two became a sweet couple but as days test their relationship, they stop themselves in impoverishment so they broke up and remained friends. In the meantime after several attempts, Kara had finally succeeded to meet her twin sister Sara in one of Edward's concert. Kara pleaded with Sara not to tell their parents yet of her return in order to avoid further complications in her family. Amidst of these, Laura and Ishmael discovered soon of Kara's presence when Kara worriedly visited her mother who got admitted in a hospital because of ulcer and when Ishmael got victimized in a taxi hold-up.
Several situations had occurred in keeping Kara and Antonio's secret including Sara who got mistaken for as Kara by Lucille and Antonio. This accidental switching of identities later gave Sara the acquisitiveness to share in Kara's luxurious life, much to Kara's detriment. Meanwhile, Sara's jealousy towards Kara heightens as she unraveled her true origins – kept and hidden by her own parents and sister. Now aware of her true identity, Sara started to yearn for Antonio's affections and used her sister's identity to get closer to her real father, but eventually the truth was revealed to Antonio that he actually shared twins with Laura.

She tells Julio, that once Becca is proven to be Isabella, the Suarezes will blame each other and destroy their family and once she succeeds in doing this, she will plan to separate Kara and Seb, not even considering her brother's feelings or reactions of her plan.

Seb arrives only to witness this mishap, Kara arrives also seeing the mess. A deranged Sara attacks Alex and asks her why she'd hurt her mother. Seb says he has had the last straw with her.
He brings her to the room and kicks her out of the Suarez house. Itoy reveals that he saw a pack of cash in her cabinet and tries to prove himself, but Alex has hid the money and made Itoy look like an idiot. Alex says they don't even have to ask her to leave the Suarezes because she herself is going to do it because she is tired of putting up with people she's not even related to. She leaves the house. Alex goes to Julio's syndicate location and tells him about her problem; she stays in the Acostas' former house that she renovated after Barbara sold it to a couple, years ago. She sleeps there for the night.
Barbara goes to Suarezes' house to talk to Laura. She says that they can finally have a testimony to help them with Sara's case, because Lucille's nurse from the mental hospital is returning to the Philippines after several years of being abroad. Hannah overhears their discussion. Later that day, Alex sees Hannah and Hannah informs her that she saw Laura talking to an old lady about Lucille's nurse from the asylum. This gives Alex a chance to plan something else against Sara to incriminate her for the abduction of Isabella. Julio orders his men to hire a woman to pose as Lucille's nurse in exchange for money.
This woman's name is Flor Bautista. Barbara calls a meeting with her and asks her about Isabella's pin and how it got into Lucille's possession. Barbara says she wants to know who ordered her to give the pin to Lucille, and why. She shows Flor a picture of Sara; Lucille's "nurse" says that Sara was the one who ordered her, and just to make sure of her statements, Barbara shows her a picture of Sara. After the meeting, Lucille's nurse gets paid and she asks the men who is Sara Suarez. The men reply to her that the less she knows, the better.
Barbara tells Laura that the nurse says that Sara is the one who ordered her to give Isabella's pin to Lucille. Kara and Laura don't seem to believe Barbara's accusations and asks her if they can talk to Lucille's nurse themselves. Barbara asks them if they cannot trust her, and they are the ones she is helping, but they can't believe her statements. Laura says that who knows that she is not just paying the nurse to frame up Sara to cover up for Lucille's crime. Their confrontation ends and Barbara gives them Flor's address.
Laura and Kara confront Flor, asking if Sara really ordered her to give the pin to Lucille. Flor's conscience starts to get the best of her and she wants to admit the truth but she is scared. Kara tries to convince to be a witness for their case against Sara; since she was the one who ordered her to give the pin to Lucille. She asks them to leave her alone and that she doesn't want to get involved in their personal affairs because she already said her piece.
Laura and Kara meet up with Barbara telling her that the nurse does not want to be a witness. Barbara tells them that they cannot blame her because who would want to get involve in a crime case; but Kara says that if the nurse has nothing to hide she should just accept their bargain to her. She starts to become suspicious. Barbara explains to them that there is no 100% that she will agree but she'll try to ask her to testify for them.
The day of the court confrontation arrives, and Alex arrives, while Flor is a witness. Flor decides to not disclose the truth about what happened to assure the safety of her children, because their lives are at stake. The Suarezes' attorney asks her if Sara is the culprit behind Isabella's abduction and also if that if she is also truly involved with the pin incident with Lucille. Flor tells the court that Sara is the real culprit and that she's behind everything that happened. The court brings in the next witness who is apparently Dina's brother, Dante Nicholas. He was also hired also like Flor. He says that he knew everything that was going on and that Sara was the plotter, and that everything never became clearer to him about Isabella's abduction until it streamed live on TV.
After the court hearing, Alex and Sara have a confrontation in the restroom as Alex tries to tamper Sara. Sara almost slaps Alex but she threatens her that if she lays one finger on her she'll sue Sara for physical injuries. Sara tells Alex that once she clears her name, she'll find out who really kidnapped Becca. She will make them pay the price.
Later, Sara went to Flor's house to question her about why she said that she ordered her to give the pin to Lucille. Flor quietly answered saying that she said everything that she already said everything she know's in the courthouse. Afraid to tell the truth because she was being stalked by Julio's men, Flor tells Sara that she'll text her where they will meet and talk. Later, Flor leaves her house with her two sons, unfortunately, they are stopped and kidnapped by one of Julio's henchmen. The henchmen found out that Flor was about to say the truth that Sara is not the real person behind Isabella's kidnapping and that she also did not order her to give the pin to Lucille. Flor and her two sons are kidnapped and brought to a warehouse; only to meet Alex.
Alex interrogates and asks Flor what she was going to tell Sara, or if she even told the truth. Flor denies her actions, causing Alex to become more intense and threatens to kill her sons if she will not fess up. Flor tells Alex that she didn't say anything to Sara and that she only asked her why she lied in court that she was ordered to give the pin to Lucille. Alex doesn't believe and Flor begs her that she has already said everything she knows, Alex lets them go and orders them to leave and move faraway. Flor follows her orders.
Sara returns to Club Felicidad and tells Mother and Banjo about the incident. She tells them that Flor backed out of their agreement and that she never showed up to the mall. Mother tells her maybe Flor had a good reason why she didn't keep her end to the bargain. Sara starts to suspect that Flor wanted to tell her something, but she was just afraid, and Sara could tell by the way Lucille's nurse was acting. Sara and Banjo later visit Flor's house but only to be told by one of her neighbors that Flor and her sons already moved out. This shocks Sara and leaves her with suspicion.

In April 2015, it was announced that Julia Montes had been given the first title role of the show. Hazel Parfan, the executive producer of the show, said they concocted the project with Montes in mind. Created as polar opposites, Montes had to change clothes, change makeup, and switch personas several times for her respective roles as Kara and Sara. Afterwards, more castings were confirmed, including Mylene Dizon, Ariel Rivera, Allen Dizon, Edgar Allan Guzman, John Lapus, Gloria Sevilla, Patricia Javier, and Alora Sasam. Bing Loyzaga and Enchong Dee were originally part of the main cast for the roles of Lucille Dela Rosa and Andy Delgado. They were later replaced by Carmina Villarroel and Anjo Damiles.
In November 2015, it was announced that Sam Milby and Maxene Magalona would also be joining the cast as one of Kara's (Montes) love interests and Sebastian's (Milby) sister, respectively. After the third-season finale, it was announced on April 22, 2016, that child actresses Krystal Mejes and Myel De Leon were cast in the second book and fourth season of the series as Isabella Acosta/Rebecca Suarez and Hannah Acosta, respectively.
The series was initially meant to be part of ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida evening block as announced on Bandila news program, declaring that Montes will be coming back on primetime. However, in a last minute change, the time slot was moved as part of Kapamilya Gold afternoon block, replacing Pinoy Big Brother: 737 GOLD, which is the schedule time after FlordeLiza and subsequently after It's Showtime.

The theme song, "Ikaw Ay Ako", composed by songwriter Vehnee Saturno, was sung by The Voice of the Philippines runner-up Klarisse de Guzman and semifinalist Morissette Amon. The song was originally composed for the television series Doble Kara. A second rendition of the song was covered by The Voice Kids grand champions Lyca Gairanod and Elha Nympha for the series' second book. The songs, from different Dreamscape Productions such as Ang Probinsyano's "Wag Ka Nang Umiyak" and "Basta't Kasama Kita", On the Wings of Love and And I Love You So's own title musics, and Nathaniel's "Lupa Man Ay Langit Na Rin", were compiled into one album.

On August 1, 2015, ABS-CBN released the first teaser trailer for the series on YouTube, featuring Montes. Another teaser followed on August 5, and once again featuring Montes. Later that month, ABS-CBN released a series of exclusive posters and cast portraits on the show's website and Twitter. On August 14, 2015, the first full-length trailer was released. On April 22, 2016, it was publicly disclosed by Julia Montes and Sam Milby in their promotion and interview that the series got renewed for another book and season because of its consistently increasing ratings which have been unprecedentedly high for an afternoon cable series, beating its rival program and a rumor surfaces that the series might get extended until August which will run for totally a year. The trailer for the second book shows the new life of Kara and Sara as mothers, having daughters of their own. On April 29, 2016, Montes, with Alora Sasam and Markki Stroem, visited SM City San Jose del Monte and served a thanksgiving concert to everyone who watches and supports the series. A promotion about the extension for the series was also included. There is also a report that the series might run until January 2017 because of its continuous high ratings.
Doble Kara airs on Mondays to Fridays at 3:00 p.m. Philippine Standard Time (PST). ABS-CBN pushed the series to an earlier time slot of 2:45 p.m. on August 31, 2015, right after FlordeLiza ended its series run. After this, the series was then again rescheduled to a later time slot of 3:20 p.m. on April 13, 2016.
The series had its world premiere on The Filipino Channel on August 25, 2015. In the Philippines, it premiered on ABS-CBN on August 24, 2015. The premiere also debuted via livestream on TFC’s official online service, TFC.tv, and via its video on demand (Internet Protocol television) service available which is subtitled in English for its worldwide viewers from United States, Canada, Europe, Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.
In Africa, the show airs on StarTimes' Novela E1 at 7:50 p.m. Central Africa Time (CAT) every Saturdays to Sundays which premiered on May 28, 2016.
Doble Kara has been met with largely positive reviews from critics since its premiere, with most praising Julia Montes' performance. Walden Sadiri M. Belen of Manila Bulletin praised Mylene Dizon's dramatic prowess during the episodes of its pilot week and the veteran actress' addition to the series, saying, "Mylene’s acting, well-supported by the performances of seasoned actors Ariel Rivera and even Allen Dizon, beefed-up the first week run of Doble Kara. Although, Julia Montes would appear on the fifth episode, Mylene and her co-stars have already built the anticipation and eagerness of viewers to the next journey of the twins as adults. Anchored on Mylene’s strong performances, Doble Kara is an afternoon soap opera filled with an ensemble cast that will succeed in luring viewers for weeks to come." Furthermore, Belen said that despite the long wait before Montes' grown-up characters appear, he can already feel the young actress' different range of acting, adding, "The first starring role of Julia Montes, Dreamscape Entertainment Television went all out to make the series a success. In the short scenes of Julia, viewers can already see the different range of acting she possesses. Playing the insipidly weak, California educated Kara and the ambitious beauty queen and commercial model Sara."
Luciano also commended Carmina Villarroel's performance and said that she also effectively grabs attention for her portrayal of Lucille, the ambiguous and struggling character who can either be adored because of her maternal love or sympathized for her growing need to seek justice. Elvin Luciano of PEP.ph finds the character of John Lapus's Itoy as "innovative", saying, "It’s refreshing to see a character like Itoy, played with subtlety and control by Lapus, the gay kumare who is oftentimes the voice of discord and not there as the token comic relief." However, "praises also goes to the fine young discovery, Avery Balasbas, who convincingly plays two different people girls with both skill and maturity," stated by Luciano.
On the other hand, Rocky Chua of TV Series Craze gave a positive review, writing, "Julia can effectively portray both the bida and the kontrabida roles which makes the story of Doble Kara more interesting and exciting. It even leads in the afternoon teleserye lineup of the Kapamilya network. And yes, the story of it is unpredictable!" On an added note, he said, "Unique story, unexpected twists, and best performance of the lead cast, Julia Montes, who is playing bida and kontrabida at the same time, makes Doble Kara one of our favorite teleseryes today. Viewers were truly hook to it!"
In Africa, the series was a massive success. It received much applause from audiences and critics alike for the role of Montes particularly as Sara Suarez. Carmina Villarroel and Maxene Magalona were also praised for their respective portrayals as Lucille and Alex. It aired along with The Promise (2015), with many saying that it edged the remake. It star rocketed Montes as both a lead protagonist and antagonist.
Doble Kara's premiere episode "Ang Simula" debuted on a high note on August 24, 2015 and scored a national TV rating of 16.9%, compared to its rival program in GMA's The Half Sisters which registered 15.6%, according to data from Kantar Media. Aside from winning the ratings game, Doble Kara also won the hearts of audiences as the #DobleKaraSimula quickly became a nationwide trending topic on Twitter because of the positive tweets posted by viewers about the show.
On April 12, 2016, Doble Kara received the highest national TV rating of 18.5% with its episode "Kara vs. Lucille – Part 2", placing 5th in the most watched program of that same day based on Kantar Media.
