AceShowbiz - Fans of Netflix hit series "Stranger Things" are shocked when a report suggests that the upcoming season 3 will be the last for the Duffer Brothers, the showrunners and creators of the sci-fi series. It is said that Matt and Ross Duffer will "likely oversee the writers room and contribute scripts while directing at least the Season 3 premiere and finale."
A source claims that the prolific talents' alleged departure from the series has something to do with their deal with Netflix which requires them to develop at least two more projects. The preparation of them is reportedly "a significant factor" of their exit.
The source adds that Matt and Ross' exit doesn't necessarily mean that Eleven and Co will end their adventure in Hawkins. "The show could likely go on after its creators leave -- as many shows have done before," the report states.
However, fans now can breathe a sigh of relief as the streaming giant has officially denied the rumors. Taking to its Twitter account, Netflix writes, "Don't drop your Eggos. Rumors that the Duffer Bros are leaving 'Stranger Things' after season 3 are false."

The Duffer Bros previously teased that season 3 of "Stranger Things" would be weirder and more character-driven. "It's not necessarily going to be bigger in scale. What I am really excited about is giving these characters an interesting journey to go on," Matt explained. The new season, which was greenlit by the streaming giant in early December last year, was also said to be "something almost weirdly more intimate."
The Millie Bobby Brown and Finn Wolfhard-starring series seemingly can't be separated from the fact that its young actors are going through adolescence, which the Duffers see as a really good change for the show. Matt said that adolescence "is a very dramatic part of your life, and drama is good!" He added, "So I think it's good it forces the show to evolve."
