Metcalfe joined the club on loan in August and made three league appearances, providing key support and competition to Theo Richardson and the goalkeeping department.
However, following an impressive display against Barnet at the start of October, Metcalfe sustained a slight finger injury.
Despite committing to training and playing, it was felt by all parties that a return to the Riverside Stadium was in his best interests.
A Fylde statement said: “The club would like to place on record its thanks to Max for his efforts and his family and Middlesbrough for allowing us to play a role in his development. He returns to the North East with our best wishes.”
