Now they must work together and salvage everything they can in order to survive until they're rescued, using natural skills they already have and learning even more skills, like how to hunt and reserve, but Ethan learns that the island is more important and more inhabited than they originally thought, and sets out to find the truths behind the island and takes it into his own hands. He learns that a secret organization known as A.R.M.E.D. has grounds on the island, and is trying to use it's unique textures and plants, and Ethan vows to stop them and make sure that he and all of his friends make home safe, no matter what it takes.
- Dylan Sprayberry as Ethan McNullan, a 16 year old boy that was raised on a farm, and is the co-captain of the eco-club. After being stranded, he does everything he can to help the group manage, which he already learned basic survival from his father, although he began discovering weird things about the island, especially after meeting a man that saved his life. The man trained Ethan to fight and to use a bow n' arrow and a sword. He is very loyal, selfless, and modest and is willing to do anything to protect his friends. Though he originally voted Jacob team leader, Jacob turns his leadership to Ethan.
- Jadin Gould as Andrea Carter, Ethan's classmate, next door neighbor, and friend, and later girlfriend, as well as the co-captain of the eco-club. She is very smart, strong-willed, hardworking, and independant, willing to take on responsibility. Though she and Ethan weren't as close before the crash, they were co-captains, and Ethan harbored a crush on her, and they become closer until they eventually started a relationship. Her father taught her how to use a crossbow for hunting, and trains even more on the island and helps Ethan fight back against A.R.M.E.D.
- Jonny Gray as Xavier Greyman, Ethan's best friend since nursery school, and is considerably like a brother to him. He is very smart, light-hearted, and fun loving, and acts as the comic relief of the group in intense situations. He is loyal and trusting, especially to his friends, Ethan and Jess, and was the first person Ethan trusted with secrets about the island.
- Emilia McCarthy as Jessica "Jess" Ericson, Ethan and Xavier's best friend, who also becomes like a sister to Andrea. She is very intelligent and is the smartest one of the group, and is very trusting and always sticks by her friends, no matter what. She harbored a secret crush on Jacob, who also had feelings for her, and they began a relationship.
- Ross Lynch as Jacob Michaels, the mysterious new kid in school, who was invited on the trip by Jess. On the island, he was a group loner, who usually keeps to himself, and mostly just gives the group help when it's needed. Ethan befriended him and believing he can keep the group civil, he convinced him to take leadership, though he was reluctant at first, and eventually turned leadership to Ethan.
- Kira Kosarin as Merissa Dalton, a spoiled and pampered cheerleader, who was wrong to think that they would only be stranded on the island shortly. She is lazy and weaker than the others, but as the series progresses she be matures and grows into a stronger and more genuine person.
- Trevor Jackson as Trey Martin, a mischevious slacker that lies and manipulates to get out of work and to get what he wants. At the end of season 1, he is killed by a group of A.R.M.E.D. assassins, despite Ethan's best efforts to save him.
- Kristin Kreuk as Danielle Manson, a young woman that has been stranded on the island for nearly two years before the teenagers. She learned about A.R.M.E.D. and rebelled against them, and later found a naked and amnesiac Ethan and took care of him until the group found him, and they joined forces.
