Beef Tobin is a single father living in the fictional town of Lone Moose, Alaska with his four children, Wolf, Ham, Judy, and Moon. Beef's life is centered on raising his children and keeping the family together. He is sometimes overbearing and smothering, but his deep love for his family is a central theme in each episode in the series.
- Nick Offerman as Beef Tobin, the main protagonist who is a fisherman and divorced father of four. Beef is still coming to terms with being abandoned by his ex-wife Kathleen. He spent years pretending that she died tragically, despite all of the Tobin children knowing the truth. He is a supportive father who encourages his children to love and respect others, although he sometimes struggles with the many changes happening in their lives and worries that they will grow apart.
- Jenny Slate as Judy Tobin, an artistically-inclined sixteen-year-old and Beef's only daughter. Judy loves her family, sharing a deep bond with her "Alaskan twin" brother Ham (they are not actual twins, but were born 9 months apart). She dreams of exploring the world beyond their small, remote hometown.
- Will Forte as Wolf Tobin, Beef's oldest son and Honeybee's husband. A sensitive and optimistic young man, Wolf longs to make his father proud, although his eagerness often puts him beyond his depth.
- Dulcé Sloan as Honeybee Shaw, Wolf's African-American wife. Confident and adventurous, she moved from her hometown of Fresno after falling in love with Wolf, and is now adapting to life in a small Alaskan fishing town.
- Paul Rust as Ham Tobin, Beef's middle son. Ham is openly gay, which his family embraces. He shares a deep bond with his "Alaskan twin" sister Judy, and they often collaborate on creative endeavors. He enjoys baking, and secretly becomes the town's "cake lady" after the previous one was arrested. He is the lead singer of Lone Moose's First Punk Band.
- Aparna Nancherla as Moon Tobin, Beef's youngest son, who shares Beef's stoic demeanor and passion for outdoorsmanship. Despite being only 10 years old, Moon is unafraid of the intimidating Alaskan wildlife, and is often seen building traps for various animals (from ruffed grouse to Bigfoot) or exploring the wilderness around the family home. Moon wears a bear-like onesie almost all the time, even to school.
- Ron Funches as Jerry Shaw, Honeybee's brother who appears in flashbacks in the third episode "Avocado Barter Adventure" before the character moves to Lone Moose, Alaska in the eighth episode "Keep Beef-lieven' Adventure" and attends Honeybee and Wolf's wedding in the first season finale. Jerry gets a job as a Bigfoot mascot.
- Megan Mullally as Alyson Lefebvrere, Judy's boss at the photography studio and an artist in her own right.
- Alanis Morissette as Alanis Morissette, Judy's interpretation of the acclaimed singer and her apparent imaginary friend who only appears in the Aurora Borealis. Judy often speaks to her for guidance on certain things. Serving to reference Morissette's role as God in Kevin Smith's View Askewniverse films Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Morissette is occasionally shown to exist separately from Judy's imagination.

|After their car breaks down, Wolf and Honeybee seek shelter at Crocodile Rob's, an Australian-themed restaurant that Beef forbade his children from visiting because he dislikes it after having bad experiences there with their mother Kathleen.

While Beef works to be more personable and host the Knife Club—a club for knife enthusiasts—he accidentally sees the kids coming back from Crocodile Rob's and angrily walks away from them. Feeling conflicted, the kids wonder if the many other places Beef has ordered them to avoid are also fun. Reasoning that Beef is already upset with them, they visit these other locations, gradually coming to the conclusion that their mother's actions were her own and that they need not avoid experiences because of her. Seeing Beef sitting alone outside the Knife Club meeting, Londra talks to Beef, who confesses that he actually avoids those places because the good memories he had with Kathleen there are more painful than the bad ones. He opens up to Londra about his lack of personability, reasoning that it's out fear of building relationships with people only for them to abandon him. He realizes that his issues have limited his children and he thanks Londra, who hugs him.

She intervenes to prevent further foodborne illness. Wolf reaches her tent and they reconcile, reasoning that they'll invariably get into fights, but also make up afterward.

On Metacritic, the series has a weighted average score of 77 out of 100 based on 10 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews."
Daniel Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter praised the performances of the actors and complimented the humor of the series, comparing it to Bob's Burgers, while noting that the series made token references to Indigenous representation and said it should embrace those more in future episodes, writing, "Then again, with memorable characters (captured in that familiar Bento Box Entertainment style), running credit gags and catchy episode-closing songs, I don’t think Bob’s Burgers as reimagined by somebody who just watched Northern Exposure would be such a bad thing anyway." Margaret Lyons of The New York Times praised the humor of the show, saying the series recalls Bob's Burgers and seems to act as a spin-off, writing, "This new comedy by some of the folks from Bob’s Burgers isn’t technically a spinoff, but it might as well be — in a good way! [...] like many comedies, it gets funnier as it goes along, but it has a silly sweetness from the start."
Joyce Slaton of Common Sense Media rated the series 4 out of 5 stars, praised the depiction of positive messages and role models, calling some of the characters lovable, supportive, and tolerant, and complimented the humor and the diversity of the cast, writing, "There's a strong streak of sweetness in this comedy, particularly in the way that family love is strong and central. The show clearly has a love for oddballs, and the humor is gentle and non-mocking." Ben Travers of IndieWire gave the series a B+ grade, called The Great North a "worthy successor to Bob’s Burgers," stating the series manages to keep its own identity even across its similarities with Bob's Burgers, praised the animation of the show for its color palette, while noting The Great North is the first animated Fox comedy with a black family member saying, "After decades spent churning out Simpsons clones, Fox is finally building off its other, nicer, animated sitcom — with encouraging results."
