On an important mission, Hal Jordan, a member of an intergalactic peacekeeping organization known as the Green Lantern Corps, goes missing. To fill the absence of a green lantern of sector 2814, the Guardians of the Universe bestow a power ring on Kyle Rayner, a young college student and struggling artist, who lives in Coast City, with his girlfriend Alex DeWitt, and his two best friends, Nicole Morrison and Lucas Carr. With help from Ferris Air owner and Hal's Girlfriend, Carol Ferris, and Hal's best friend, aerospace engineer Thomas Kalmaku, Kyle must learn to focus his powers, using his artistic imagination and strong will to power his Green Lantern ring, to fight an array of superpowered villains and extraterrestrial threats, while uncovering the disappearance of Jordan and the conspiracy of a war between the different Lanterns of the emotional spectrum.
- Dylan Sprayberry as Kyle Rayner/Green Lantern, an initially nineteen year old student in college, and a talented graphic artist, struggling to make his career, trying to sell his illustrations and comic books. Due to his strong will, he is chosen to take Hal Jordan's place as Green Lantern of sector 2814. Using the Green Lantern power ring, Kyle can create green energy constructs of anything his mind can comprehend. If he can imagine it, he can create it, with his artistic imagination giving him an advantage.
- Erica Durance as Carol Ferris, the manager of Ferris Air, and the fiancee of Hal Jordan, who is working with their friend Thomas to uncover Hal's disappearance. After discovering that a new Green Lantern has arrived in Coast City, Carol befriended Kyle and helped him understand his powers and helped him train, using an abandoned Ferris Air runway. Later in the series, Carol is chosen to be a Star Saphire, a member of the Violet Lantern Corps.
- Jadin Gould as Alexandra "Alex" DeWitt, Kyle's girlfriend and another student at Coast University, who works as a photographer selling pictures of Green Lantern to a local newspaper. She didn't know about Kyle's secret, unlike their best friends Lucas and Nicole, and she often felt he was hiding something from her, leading to them breaking up, until the season one finale, in which she found out his secret, but in season 3 she was killed by Atrocitus.
- Daniel Henney as Thomas "Tommy" Kalmaku, Hal's best friend and an aerospace engineer at Ferris Air. He was the first person to know of Hal's identity as Green Lantern.

Now, he does the same thing for Kyle, while working with Carol to find Hal.
- Kiersey Clemons as Nicole "Nikki" Morrison, Kyle, Alex, and Lucas' best friend and fellow classmate at Coast University, majoring in biology. Like Lucas, she quickly learned Kyle's secret. When she was younger, she suffered a traumatic event, being abducted and watching her mother's murder. Though she was affected, her mother taught her that even in the darkest soul, there is hope. In season 3 of the series, her kind soul and hopeful spirit allowed her to be chosen to become a blue lantern.
- Uriah Shelton as Lucas Carr, Kyle's best friend since childhood, and the best friend of Alex and Nicole, who majors in technological engineering at Coast University. Unlike Alex, Lucas knew that Kyle was the Green Lantern and helped keep his identity a secret. He is good with computers and quickly connects with Tommy, due to their similarities. He secretly harbors a crush on Nicole.
- James Marsden as Hal Jordan, a test pilot at Ferris Air, who is engaged to the boss, Carol Ferris, and is best friends with the aerospace engineer, Tommy, and is also the Green Lantern of sector 2814, before disappearing on a secret mission.

After he was freed, he left Earth to make up for everything he did under Parallax's control, feeling Earth was in good hands with Kyle as the Green Lantern.
- Nathan Fillion as Alan Scott, a superhero from an alternate universe, under the alias Green Lantern. As a young railroad engineer, he was gifted with a Green Lantern ring, previously wielded by a warrior who abused it and attacked a village, so the Gaurdians gave the ring a weakness of wood, so the villagers could kill him with wooden weapons. That weakness stood as it was passed on to Scott. He traveled to Earth-1, from Earth-3, to warn the Green Lanterns of that world that Parallax has stolen the energy of Oa's battery, and has entered their world to do the same thing. Along the way, he taught Kyle multiple tricks, including phasing, mind-probing, and creating worm holes.
- Clancy Brown and J.K. Simmons as the Guardians of the Universe, the founders and leaders of the Green Lantern Corps, which they administer from the homeworld, Oa. Seeking to bring peace to the universe, the Oans made robotic androids, called Manhunters, but when they started killing innocents, they were shut down. In their next attempt, they decided their warriors should be living, with powerful will and morals, leading them to manufacture advanced technological rings, powered by the green element of Oa's Core.
- Michael Clark Duncan as Kilowag, a strong and tough Green Lantern, who has an initial distrust of humans, until he started training Hal Jordan. When Kyle started, he gave Kyle a rough time, but when Kyle saved him from Kanjar-Ro, he began trusting him, enough to listen to him, when Kyle investigates Sinestro. When times seem blurry, Kilowag is one of the only Lantern's Kyle trusts.
- Mark Strong as Thaal Sinestro, a member of the Green Lantern Corps, who taught Hal Jordan, and was friends with Abin Sur, the previous wielder of Jordan's power ring. He was assigned to help Kyle on a mission to defeat the manhunters, but Kyle had suspicions about him, as did Hal, and learned that Sinestro has manifested the yellow element of Qward into a power ring, becoming a yellow lantern, until being defeated by Kyle. After his escape, he restored the yellow element Power Battery, and started the Sinestro Corps, creating an army of yellow lanterns.
- Jai Courtney as Guy Gardener, another one of the few Green Lanterns that are human. He was one of the two people qualified to have Abin Sur's ring, the other being Hal, but Hal was closer. Growing up, Guy was a juvenile, but his policeman brother set him straight, until his brother was murdered and an accident ended his football career. In season 1, he started out as a petty theif, who robbed Alex. Kyle found him and confronted him, convincing him to clean up his act. Between the first and second seasons, he was chosen as Kyle's back-up, when Kyle left to assist in an unsuccessful search mission for Hal. Despite his claim to clean-up and becoming a green lantern, Guy is still an obnoxious and sarcastic jerk, but is however a good friend of Kyle's.
- Idris Elba as John Stewart, a war veteran and architect, as well as the second human to become a Green Lantern, as Hal's backup, but when Hal left, John took his place as Green Lantern of sector 2814. Upon Jordan's return, John joined the Green Lantern Honor Gaurd, and on occasional returns to Earth, assists Kyle on missions and in battles.
- as Yalan Gur, a Green Lantern from Earth-2, who was so favored by the Guardians, that they removed the yellow impurity from his ring (which they deliberately place in all of the GL rings to limit their power), but he abused his power and tortured a village in China, so the Guardians substituted a weakness for wood, allowing the peasants to kill him, before his ring was taken, he used it to place his spirit in the Lantern, which would one day become Alan Scott's.
- Phil Morris as Saint Walker, the leader of the Blue Lantern Corps, who was formerly a preist on his home planet, which was doomed, due to the dying sun, and was chosen by the blue element of Adara as the first Blue Lantern to heal the sun. The powers of the blue lanterns are powered by hope, the strongest of the seven emotions, and are stronger with Green Lanterns, because without will, there can't be hope. Powers that Blue lanterns have that Green does not, include healing wounds, regeneration lost body parts, and power supplementing. The ring also negatively impacts corps of the opposite emotion and can neutralize corruption or red, block energy-stealing of orange, and drain power of yellow.
- Allison Mack as Tora Olafsdotter, a meteorologist working at the Coast City sect of Mercury Labs, and has on occasion helped Green Lantern, both Kyle and Hal Jordan. After learning her boss, Dr. Eno, had created a weather controlling machine, she tried to help disable it, but after Kyle damaged the machine, it created a wave of blue energy that changed her DNA and gave her the ability to generate ice, and took on the alias Ice.
