The Superman & Lois star opened up on his decision to exit The CW drama after two seasons.
“It’s been a tough few weeks, as you might imagine, with everything going on with the show,” Elsass says in a new video recorded for a fan on Cameo.
“It’s sad, it’s a real shame. I know that I was pumped for Season 3, for sure, but what are you going to do?"
"Anyway, mental health is definitely 100-percent priority. It’s pinnacle. It’s got to take precedence. And mine has been … the last couple of years … it’s been rough.”
“I need some time to myself” he continues.
“I’m still debating whether I’m even going to act for a while," Elsass added.
"I may go in a different direction. I know that’s definitely going to be disappointing to some people.”

“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 at the time.
Variety added that the exit is not because of a “workplace-related issue.”
At the time, it was revealed the Jonathan Kent role will be recast.
