The "Parenthood" cast is arguably the most talented ensemble casts on the air today. This is a large cast, covering three generations of the Braverman clan. For ease of reference, couples will be covered together.

  1. Zeek and Camille Braverman (Craig T. Nelson and Bonnie Bedelia) Their relationship is currently "one day at a time" due to infidelity and lack of trust on one side, and temper issues on the other. Zeek's learning the hard way that marriage doesn't come with guarantees of permanence. They are retired.

  2. Adam and Kristina Braverman (Peter Krause and Monica Potter) Adam and Kristina have two children, Haddie (Sarah Ramos) and Max (Max Burkholder). Haddie is currently dating a 19 year-old recovering alcoholic after a stand-off with Adam and Kristina. Max has Asperger's. Because of Max' issues, Kristina is a stay-at-home mom. Adam is upper management in a shoe factory he's been with for 25 years.

  3. Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham) Sarah is divorced from the father of her two children, Amber (Mae Whitman) and Drew (Miles Heizer) Holt. Their father, Seth Holt (John Corbett) is, as of this writing, nine months sober. Sarah tends bar, and she and her family lives with Zeek and Camille.

  4. Crosby Braverman (Dax Shepherd) Crosby is involved with Jasmine Trussell (Joy Bryant). He recently found out that he has a six year-old son with Jasmine, Jabbar (Tyree Brown). As of this writing, the engagement is off because Jasmine is giving new meaning to the world "controlling." The "Parenthood" cast could lose her right now, and more than a few fans would cheer. Crosby shared an apartment with Jasmine for a short time, and now he's living on his houseboat again.

  5. Julia Braverman-Graham (Erika Christensen) and Joel Graham (Sam Jaeger) Joel and Julia have a daughter, Sydney (Savannah Paige Rae). She is the same age as Jabbar. Julia is a high-level corporate attorney, and Joel is a stay-at-home dad who also makes money via his woodworking projects.

This is the permanent "Parenthood" cast. There are also regular appearances by Alex (Michael B. Jordan), Haddie's boyfriend, and Renee Trussell (Tina Lifford), Jasmine's mom.
