The actor played Jonathan Kent, the son of Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin), aka Superman, and Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch), in the show's first two seasons. The role will now be recast.

"Jordan Elsass has notified the Studio that he will not be returning to Superman & Lois for Season 3 due to personal reasons," Warner Bros. Television said in a statement. "The role of Jonathan Kent will be recast."

Sources said Elsass' departure was not due to a workplace-related issue.

Superman & Lois is based on the DC Comics characters. The series is created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, with Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter as executive producers.

News of Elsass' exit follows the Season 2 finale, which aired at the end of June.
