Former tennis coaches Stan (Neill) and Joy (Bening) have sold their successful tennis academy and are ready to start what should be the golden years of their lives. While they look forward to spending time with their four adult children (Brie, Lacy, Merrigan-Turner, Randles), everything changes when a wounded young woman knocks on Joy and Stan’s door, bringing the excitement they’ve been missing. But when Joy suddenly disappears, her children are forced to re-examine their parents’ so-called perfect marriage as their family’s darkest secrets begin to surface.

Apples Never Fall also stars Alison Brie, Jake Lacy, Conor Merrigan-Turner and Essie Randles, and is created by writer, showrunner and executive producer Melanie Marnich (The OA, The Affair) and executive producer David Heyman (Wonka, Barbie).
