Greenhouse Academy is a Netflix original series based on the Israeli television series The Greenhouse (Ha-Hamama) by Giora Chamizer.

Brother and sister Alex and Hayley Woods enroll at a private boarding school for gifted future leaders called Greenhouse Academy. They join two competing houses within the school and become rivals. Soon, mysterious events draw the students from both houses into a top secret investigation.


The first season premiered on Netflix on September 8, 2017, the second season premiered on February 14, 2018, the third season premiered on October 25, 2019, and the fourth and final season premiered on March 20, 2020.

This series includes examples of:

  • Aborted Arc:
    • Jackie and Max got together in the Season 2 Finale, only for her to be gone by the Season 3 premiere.
    • The earthquake storyline seems to be dropped after Season 2 in favor of using a deadly virus instead.
  • Ascended Extra: Becca was a background character with a different hairstyle in the first two seasons before becoming one of the main Ravens in season three.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Suzanne is revealed to be working for the client, and has no problem with trying to kill the Greenhouse's students.
  • Cast as a Mask: Jason's split personality is played by Adriano Haovel, while Jason himself is played by Yiftach Mizrahi.

  • Cultural Translation: In addition to changing the setting, some elements of The Greenhouse's plot were changed to better suit an American audience. For example: the taser that Daniel finds and injures himself with was originally a gun.
  • Foreign Remake: Of The Greenhouse.
  • Once More, with Clarity!: The season 4 finale reveals that Jason and the client are the same person with a split personality, showing previous scenes only this time with Jason talking to himself as he alternates between personas.
  • Put on a Bus:
    • Jackie left the academy to find her mom and breaks up with Max inbetween seasons.
    • Aspen moves back to London inbetween seasons as well.
    • Judy and Marcus are presumably still in prison after the end of Season 2, and have not appeared in person since then.
  • Remake Cameo: Tamir Ginsburg, who played Ron (who Parker was based on) in the original series, plays the role of Tyler in the first episode.

  • Split-Personality Takeover: Jason was revealed to be the client the whole time as an example of this.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Becca seems to be one for Aspen after her departure, as most of her screentime is just her being jealous of Hayley and caring for Leo.
