Mystery Woman stars Kellie Martin as Samantha Kinsey, proprietor of a bookstore specializing in mystery books who gets involved in solving real-life mysteries. Martin has also directed two episodes.
- Samantha Kinsey (Kellie Martin): An avid murder-mystery fan who inherits a bookstore in the first film. Her extensive knowledge of murder-mystery books assists her in her amateur sleuthing.
- Philby (J.E. Freeman in the first film, Clarence Williams III in subsequent films): Caretaker of the bookstore, later revealed to have worked in a secret agency for the government identified as O.S.D. Level 6 in Mystery Woman: Oh Baby. Samantha's father figure.
- Cassie Hillman (Constance Zimmer in the first film, replaced by Nina Siemaszko in subsequent films): An assistant to the D.A. and personal friend of Samantha.
- Chief Connors (Casey Sander): The often-foiled police chief who is quick to arrest before Samantha usually proves him wrong. Despite the fact that he hates it when Samantha interferes in his investigations, Chief Connors does care for her, as shown in In the Shadows when he tells her that she may be a pain in the back side but she is his pain in the back side. His affection is also shown by his nickname for her: "Snoopy".
