Much to the dismay of thousands of General Hospital fans, it looks like Tyler Christopher will not be returning to the role of Nikolas Cassadine.

Though fans have been on pins and needles, awaiting the return of General Hospital's Tyler Christopher (Nikolas Cassadine), it looks like the actor will not be reprising his role after all.

Multiple sources have confirmed to soapcentral.com that the actor and the powers that be at GH hoped to strike a new deal but were unable to come to terms during contract negotiations, meaning Christopher won't be stepping back into the shoes of the character he originated in 1996. The actor cleared out his dressing room earlier this month.

Christopher left Port Charles in June of this year for what were described as "personal reasons." The show temporarily hired Nick Stabile to fill the role of Nikolas, but his stint ended on July 19 when the character turned up missing after a fall. Shortly after, Christopher announced during the GH Fan Club Weekend that he was on his way back to the show, but the actor later took to Twitter to clarify his statement. "Slow down [everyone] I said I THINK Sept. will b my return 2 #GH," he wrote about his Fan Club Weekend announcement. "Nothing official yet. Thanks for all the love 2day though. #Muchappreciated"

A GH rep confirms that Christopher will not be returning to the show. However, at this time, there's no word on whether or not GH plans to recast Nikolas or if the character will remain off the canvas. Soap Opera Digest first reported on Christopher's non-return.

UPDATE:
Christopher broke his silence on Twitter Wednesday evening.

"Thank u all for your kind words," Christopher posted on Twitter. "You're the best fans in the world. I will miss u! #whatarun"
