Following Jordan Elsass’ departure from the series, Michael Bishop has been cast to take over the role of Jonathan Kent in the next season of Superman & Lois.
It was recently announced that Jordan Elsass would not be returning for Season 3 of Superman & Lois, in which he had played the titular couple’s son Jonathan. The actor cited his mental health as the reason for his exit from the DC series.
Now, it has finally been revealed who will replace him, with Michael Bishop officially taking over the role of Jonathan Kent.
