Original cast member Jesse Metcalfe (Miguel Lopez-Fitzgerald) had opted to leave NBC's Passions upon the expiration of his contract.

"Jesse's decided not to renew his contract," a show spokesperson said in a statement. "He's going to pursue other projects and we wish him the best of luck."

During his nearly five-year run on Passions, Metcalfe has also found time to film special guest appearances on the series Smallville, where he played the character Van McNulty. Metcalfe also had a small part in the tele-movie 44 Minutes: The North Hollywood Shoot-Out .

Show execs have not yet decided if the role of Miguel will be recast or simply written out. A decision on the character's future is expected at a later date.

A final airdate for Metcalfe comes on July 26th.
