Obliterated cast members

Obliterated, the latest action/drama series released on Netflix, brings a new assorted group of actors and characters into the fold through a stacked cast.

Multiple branches of the United States Armed Forces team up with one another in Obliterated to combat a dangerous terrorist network from leaving Las Vegas in ruins.

The real issue is that these various agents believe they got the job done and celebrate accordingly, not realizing the bomb they diffused is fake, and are now forced to fight through hangovers and exhaustion to truly finish their work.

Created by the team behind fellow Netflix hit Cobra Kai, Obliterated brings an eight-episode adventure to the small screen, and it made its official debut on November 30.

Shelly Henning takes center stage in Obliterated as Ava Winters, a top-tier CIA agent who leads the raid against a group of terrorists looking to blow up Las Vegas.

Initially seen as the most uptight member of the group, Winters is reluctant to let loose after accomplishing their mission and struggles to get back in the game after sleeping with a co-worker, getting wasted, and even throwing up.

Hennig's most notable role is that of Malia Tate in Teen Wolf and the ensuing movie, she also starred in The Secret Circle, Unfriended, and Ouija.

Nick Zano - Chad McKnight

Nick Zano's Chad McKnight is a SEAL team leader working under Ava against the terrorists in Vegas, coming off as a major macho type who's ready to go in guns blazing toward any kind of firefight.

Sleeping with Winters after the mission ends, McKnight oftentimes lets his anger get the better of him as he looks to break the terrorists, although there's also a sensitive side to him that takes some time to be coaxed out.

Zano played a major role as Nate Heywood in DC's Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow within the Arrowverse, and other credits include What I Like About You, The Final Destination, and Minority Report.

C. Thomas Howell - Hagerty

C. Thomas Howell lets out his crazy side in Obliterated as Hagerty, a psycho bomb expert with only seven fingers who helps the team diffuse the initial bomb that's later revealed to be fake.

Taking a heaping of drugs and alcohol, Hagerty ends up passing out and collapsing onto a glass table, but not before getting completely naked for all to see. He would later spend the vast majority of the series knocked out cold.

Howell is best known for a run of epic '80s classics like E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, The Outsiders, and Red Dawn.

Kimi Rutledge - Maya Lerner

Lerner starts with a huge crush on McKnight, which incites some major tension between her and Winters after she walks in on Winters and McKnight together, leading to some drastic decisions in how she lives her life.
