The CW has announced that it has found a new actor for the role of Johnathan Kent on Superman & Lois.

Australian actor Michael Bishop has been announced to be replacing Jordan Elsass as Johnathan Kent in Superman & Lois season 3. It was announced in August that Elsass had opted to not return to the series for personal reasons.

Bishop made his American film debut recently playing the role of DJ Maz in the Disney Channel film, Spin. In Australia, he appeared in the TV series Grace Beside Me, and was in the film Swinging Safari.

Superman & Lois season 3 is set to debut in a mid-season slot, so there is still time for him to appear in the earlier episodes of the season.

Tyler Hoechlin will be returning as Superman/Clark Kent and Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane.
