Warner Bros. Television has released a statement announcing that Jordan Elsass will not be returning for Season 3 of “Superman & Lois,” with the role of Jonathan Kent to be recast.
“Jordan Elsass has notified the Studio that he will not be returning to Superman & Lois for season 3 due to personal reasons. The role of Jonathan Kent will be recast.”
Reports are that this has nothing to do with any workplace-related issues, but is a personal matter unrelated to the series.
According to a recent interview with showrunner Todd Helbing, Jonathan’s role in Season 3 of “Superman & Lois” looks likely to include some super-abilities of his own. “We’ll see if [Jonathan] gets his own suit, if he follows Nat’s lead, and how it all unfolds,. We definitely want to bring Jonathan into that superhero life more than he has been.”
Season 3 of “Superman & Lois” begins filming in September, with the first episode scheduled to premiere in early 2023.
