‘Q-Force’ Adult Animated Series Cast & Details Announced

It's still Pride Month, and there has been plenty to celebrate.  More and more, the LGBTQ+ community is being represented in the world of superheroes both on the page and on the screen.  Powers or no powers, there are members of certain factions of heroes that are part of that community.  Netflix has decided that it's time for a whole team of LGBTQ+ heroes to save the world.

Q-Force is an adult animated series coming to the streamer on September 2nd.  It comes from creator and executive producer Gabe Liedman (Pen15, Broad City, Brooklyn Nine-Nine).  Sean Hayes, Todd Milliner, Ben Heins, Mike Schur and  David Miner also join as executive producers.  Hayes was also one of the main members of the cast that were announced as well.  Here they are and the characters they will play:

  • Sean Hayes (he/him/his) is Agent Steve Maryweather. As the leader of Q-Force, Agent Mary is a gifted agent for the American Intelligence Agency. Once pushed aside for being openly gay, now he has everything to prove and puts his team’s success above all else.

  • Gary Cole (he/him/his) is Director Dirk Chunley, head of the AIA and as straight and stiff as they come.

  • David Harbour (he/him/his) is Agent Rick Buck. Long-time rival of Agent Mary, Agent Buck is assigned to keeping Q-Force in check and the status quo of The AIA boys club in place. Will more time with Q-Force bring out the ally in Buck?

  • Patti Harrison (she/her/hers) is Stat, the team’s resident hacker. Brilliant and guarded - there’s no secret she can’t expose except her own.

  • Laurie Metcalf (she/her/hers) is V, the Deputy Director of the AIA and the highest ranking woman in the Agency. She’s the chief badass in charge with a soft spot for Agent Mary.

  • Matt Rogers (he/him/his) is Twink a drag queen master of disguises - the fun-loving, full of energy genius with a side of drama and daddy issues.

  • Wanda Sykes (she/her/hers) is an expert mechanic and gadget guru, Deb. When not on assignment or pretending to work at Pep Boys, she’s spending time with her wife and her 16 trauma rescue pitties. Gadgets aren’t her only speciality - she’s the heart and soul of Q-Force.

  • Gabe Liedman is Benji (he/him/his). Sweet and charming love interest of Agent Mary, Benji is often in peril due to his proximity to Q-Force.

Here's a quick look at what you can expect from the upcoming series:


Here is the full synopsis for the series:  "Steve Maryweather, AKA Agent Mary, was once the Golden Boy of the American Intelligence Agency (AIA), until he came out as gay. Unable to fire him, the Agency sent him off to West Hollywood, to disappear into obscurity. Instead, he assembled a misfit squad of LGBTQ+ geniuses. Joining forces with the expert mechanic Deb, master of drag and disguise Twink, and hacker Stat, together they’re  Q-Force.

But, after a decade of waiting for their first official mission from The AIA, Mary becomes hell-bent on proving himself to the Agency that turned its back on him, and decides to go rogue with Q-Force. After finding their own case, and solving it on their own terms, they get the reluctant approval of The AIA, and are officially upgraded to Active Secret Agents in the field. But, that approval comes with one major caveat-- they must put up with a new member of the squad: straight-guy Agent Buck."

All 10 episodes of Q-Force will be available on Thursday, September 2nd on Netflix from Universal Television (a division of Universal Studio Group) in association with Hazy Mills, Fremulon and 3 Arts Entertainment.  We still have a couple of months until the release date, but a full trailer will likely be coming soon.  Keep checking back for updates.  Until then, save a spot on your Netflix list by going to www.netflix.com/QForce
