‘Apples Never Fall’ Cast and Character Guide: Who Plays Who on the Peacock Drama?

“Apples Never Fall,” adapted from Liane Moriarty’s best-selling novel by showrunner Melanie Marnich, centers on the Delaneys, a competitive family of former tennis coaches and players who have all sorts of complications that arise from such a dynamic. Joy (Annette Bening) and Stan (Sam Neill) have just retired from running their own tennis academy, and each parent has different ways of coping with their change in lifestyle.

Adult children Amy (Alison Brie), Troy (Jake Lacy), Logan (Conor Merrigan Turner) and Brooke (Essie Randles) each also have different memories of their parents. While all six live their own separate lives, the family still resides near each other and their childhood home.
