Since Joe is not a regular character on the series, it is hard to tell if he is actually leaving the show or taking a short break from the show. There has not been any confirmation from the official page of the show or the actor himself regarding the actor quitting.
Also, there are no further works lined up for Joe on his IMDb page for the actor, so there’s still hope that he would continue with the show.
