- Rhenzy Feliz (Teen Wolf, Casual) has been cast as Alex Wilder. The character has been described as a “loud-and-proud nerd” who is a bit of a loner and wants to reunite with his friends from childhood. Alex also served as team leader in the comics.
- Lyrica Okano (The Affair, Unforgettable) has been cast as Nico Minoru. She is described as being tough, intelligent, and independent. She also happens to be a witch. Nico has also served as team leader after Alex. The young witch, in possession of the Staff of One, was also a member of A-Force.
