No, you don't. There's a german sci-fi novel series called "Justifiers" that consists of 10 books and is written by 10 different authors, but it's all based in the same universe and is about the same special forces organisation. But every book follows a different squad and their adventures. It's a really interesting read (when you understand german).

Yeah, can't you make multiple squads from these characters? Because then you could follow the actions of each squad for 1 chapter each. I did read books like that before. Where you have multiple groups of people or single people that move through time and space simultaneously, and you just reference them by 1 main person of that group. That eliminates confusion, because you don't have to follow 10 people at once, but 2 groups and 2 people. That makes it a lot easier to remember.

Not impossible, no. Impossible while retaining the old cast, also no. Impossible while retaining the cast and telling a good story people can really sink into... most likely yes.
