Leading the cast is Pokémon Detective Pikachu star Kathryn Newton, who plays Allie, and Rachel Keller as her sister, Cassandra, who was the student body president. But school is now out for ... well, who knows how long, and plenty of others are looking to take on a leadership role.
Other significant characters - and there are a lot of cast members - include:
- Sean Berdy as Sam, a deaf student who uses sign language with some of the other characters but can also lip-read.
- Toby Wallace as Campbell, Sam's thuggish brother.
- Jacques Colimon as Will, who used to travel to school in West Ham from a nearby town, and therefore has nowhere to live.
- Grace Victoria Cox as Lexi, West Ham's resident mean girl.
