Rumours have abounded of late that 'Stranger things' creators and directors the Duffer brothers were leaving the show. But now Netflix has silenced them.

"Rumours that the Duffer bros are leaving 'Stranger Things' after season three are false," the streaming service tweeted recently.

It was previously reported that the pair would be more hands off after this next series in order to concentrate on other projects for Netflix. Netflix hasn't said they won't work on other projects, so it could mean they are still involved, just not as heavily as before.

But either way, they're not leaving anytime soon.

The third series will debut towards the end of this year, though an exact airing date is yet to be announced. The second series was available from Halloween last year, so it makes sense to expect it around the same time this year. Plus the timing matches the series' spooky goings-on.

The show revolves around the small town of Hawkins, Indiana, and the mysterious disappearance of a young boy amid a series of supernatural happenings. It's been a critical hit, with fans lapping up the 1980s setting, music and clear nods to its Stephen King and Steven Spielberg influences.

The show will run for four or five series, according to one of the show's stars. And series three could air in virtual reality.
