The characters of the Freaks and Geeks TV series are the fictional persons whose experiences are shown in the 18 episodes of the show. They are portrayed by the cast members. Depending on their importance for the show, they are divided into three different groups.
Main characters are the characters who are most important for the show. They are portrayed by the regular cast members which are credited in the opening credits of each episode and appear in all the 18 episodes of the TV series.
Recurring characters are the characters who appear in at least two different episodes of the TV series. They are portrayed by recurring cast members which are credited after the opening credits or in the end credits.
↑Even if Kim Kelly is not included in the opening credits, she is nevertheless regarded as a main character because she appers in all the 18 episodes and Busy Philipps is credited immediately after the opening credits by "also starring" instead of appearing as "guest" or "co-starring".
↑ 2.02.1The cast members of the recurring and minor characters are indicated after the opening credits as "guests" or in the end credits as "co-starring". The credits do not make a difference between recurring and minor characters or between reccuring cast members and guest stars.
