‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Nikolas Returns – Recast Likely – The Latest News

General Hospital spoilers say that Nikolas Cassadine may be back soon, but whether it’ll be Tyler Christopher or a recast remains to be seen. There’s new chatter behind the scenes at the ABC soap. A source says that Frank Valentini is in talks with Tyler Christopher, but it might not pan out. Why? The last contract negotiations were reportedly bitter. Here’s the latest update on the fate of the Cassadine Dark Prince on GH. And why we may see a recast.

General Hospital Spoilers: Nickolas Cassadine Return Hints Dropped

You might remember GH spoilers from more than a year go with Cassandra Pierce (Jessica Tuck) nabbed from the clinic by a mystery Cassadine. At the time, there was speculation that it might be Stephen Nicholas back as Stefan Cassadine. He had a Cassadine ring, but lots of the men in the family have that crest ring. And guess who’s name just came up?

In two recent conversations on GH, they dropped Cassandra Pierce’s name. One was Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton) and Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard). The other was Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) talking to himself. Those mentions were not for nothing. So, look for more General Hospital spoilers on Cassandra coming back – and with her likely will be Nikolas Cassadine.

Be sure to check out what Tyler said in our recent interview with the actor.

GH Spoilers: Nikolas Cassadine Back – Original or Recast?

General Hospital spoilers and chatter on Nikolas coming back are gaining momentum. Now, some tidbits from a source behind the scenes say that Frank Valentini is talking on the sly to Tyler Christopher about coming back. You might recall several years back that contract negotiations fell apart. That’s why Nick Stabile stepped in as Nikolas. Then the talks fell apart, and the show “killed off” Nik.

Now, GH spoilers tease the mentions of Cassandra and the pursuit of Alex Marick (Anna Devane’s twin) might all tie into the Nikolas Cassadine return plot. It also seems that Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher) knows something about Cassandra. Curtis found a folder on Cassandra in Jax’s files. This may tie to Nikolas, hint General Hospital spoilers.

General Hospital Needs a Casting “Win” Right Now

To be fair, GH spoilers show that the ABC soap needs a casting victory. Michelle Stafford was lured back to Young and the Restless and left the role of Nina Reeves. Next to go could be Billy Miller departing the role of Drew Cain. That’s promised to come out in the next few weeks. Plus, Dominic Zamprogna stepped back from his role of Dante Falconeri.

So, it sure looks like they could use a casting boost at General Hospital. Spoiler hints leaking out of the show indicate that it would be a feather in the cap for the show when they most need it. So, if they can lure back Tyler Christopher, that would be great. If not, the latest scoop is that they will recast because they want the role back to the character canvas.

As of now, the negotiations are ongoing, says the set source. But if the talks fall apart, the behind-the-scenes leaker says to watch for a casting call soon that matches the description of Nikolas Cassadine. So, what do you think? Do you want Nikolas back no matter who’s in the role or do you want Tyler Christopher or nothing?
