Netflix has revealed the voice cast for its animated LGBTQ spy series, "Q-Force," and it's a superstar lineup, including Sean Hayes, Gary Cole, David Harbour, Patti Harrison, Laurie Metcalf, Matt Rogers, Wanda Sykes and Gabe Liedman.

As reported by The Wrap, the show follows a Golden Boy of the American Intelligence Agency (AIA) who creates a team of LGBTQ misfit, spies after being blacklisted from his agency for being gay.

The characters include the following descriptions from Netflix:

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.

"Netflix ordered 'Q-Force,' which is created by Gabe Liedman, to series in April 2019," reports The Wrap. "The show is executive produced by Liedman, Hayes, Todd Milliner, Ben Heins, Mike Schur and David Miner."

The show premieres Thursday, Sept. 2, with a 10-episode arc. Watch the trailer below.
