Cast and characters
- "Weird Al" Yankovic as Milo Murphy, the title character of the series. He is 13 years old and has a reputation for having extreme misfortune, but he is always optimistic and finds ways to overcome it.
- Sabrina Carpenter as Melissa Chase, a long-time friend of Milo's who likes to hang out with him despite his bad luck.
- Mekai Curtis as Zack Underwood, the new kid in Swamp City who becomes best friends with Milo and Melissa and sticks by Milo even though he is a jinx.
- Christian Slater as Elliot Decker, the school crossing guard and self-described "Safety Czar". He makes it his mission to protect the city from Milo, and constantly hinders Milo and the gang, particularly Milo. He even goes as far as to have a "STOP" sign with "MILO" on the obverse.
- Vanessa Williams as Eileen Underwood, Zack's mother, A surgeon.
- Sarah Chalke as Mrs. Murawski, the science teacher of Jefferson County Middle School. She harbors an unhealthy affection towards her desk.
- Jemaine Clement as Orton Mahlson, an actor playing the role of Dr Zone the main character of the eponymous show within a show. He is based on the titular character from Doctor Who, as he travels through time.
- Mackenzie Phillips as Elizabeth Milder, the principal of Jefferson County Middle School.

- Ming-Na Wen as Savannah, a time travel agent.
- Brett Dalton as Brick, another time travel agent.
- Vincent Martella as Bradley Nicholson, a pessimistic but arrogant student who is jealous of the attention Milo always gets.

- Diedrich Bader as Martin Murphy, Milo's father. Just like his son, he has extreme misfortune, as he usually crashes on his bicycle lots of times. He works as Danville's City Safety Inspector, mostly due to the fact that when he's around, safety contingencies are pushed to the limit.

- Kate Micucci as Sara Murphy, Milo's older sister and fellow Dr. Zone fan who loves her brother despite his recurring bad luck.
- Dee Bradley Baker as Diogee, Milo's dog. He regularly follows Milo, who keeps telling him to go home as he is almost always not allowed to be wherever Milo is at the moment. His name is pronounced "D-O-G," as if spelling out the word "dog."
- Greg Cipes as Mort Schaeffer, a burly-looking student in Milo's class. He is Bradley's friend, but is annoyed over Bradley's arrogance and tends to be civil with Milo.
- Sophie Winkleman as Time Ape, Dr. Zone's sidekick.
