Michael Strahan's abrupt exit from Live With Kelly and Michael is causing quite the media frenzy.

So we're not surprised the producers of the morning program are considering sending the former NFL pro off with less of a bang and more of a whisper!

After Kelly Ripa returned to Live on Tuesday, the network confirmed that Strahan would be departing the show on May 13 instead of September — which was initially announced as the month he would begin working full time on Good Morning America.

But after the sneaky shake up caused a bit of turbulence between Kelly and the producers, the show probably won't be making that big of a deal when Strahan ends his four year stint as co-host.

Michael Strahan shocked America on Tuesday by announcing he would be leaving Live With Kelly and Michael for a full-time position on Good Morning America!

And apparently, Kelly Ripa was just as surprised — because her costar of four years dropped the bomb on her right after Tuesday's show!

Production sources told TMZ that the former NFL star sat down with Ripa and exec producer Michael Gelman at 10:30 a.m. EST to let them know he was parting ways with them for another morning talk show!

According to the source, Kelly and Gelman were "stunned and upset" by the news — because no one on the show had ANY clue Strahan was about to switch teams!

RANK: Who Should Replace Michael On Live?!

Though it doesn't sound like the secrecy is the former New York Giants player's fault, as the stealthy move was orchestrated by Disney CEO Bob Iger — who reportedly already has a replacement plan to fill the seat next to Kelly.

One source told ET that the perky blonde's close friend Anderson Cooper is a frontrunner to fill in — though the silver fox might need CNN's permission to do the show.

Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan's Halloween costumes are pure MAGIC!

The Live! With Kelly and Michael hosts kill it in the costume department every year — and this All Hallow's Eve is no exception!

Taking to Instagram to tease their upcoming Halloween episode, the ABC talk show hosts were dressed up as the hunky male strippers from Magic Mike — with producer Michael Gelman and head of production Art Moore!

While Kelly may have looked something like Kate McKinnon's Saturday Night Live impression of Justin Bieber, Strahan seemed to expertly reprise his role as Augustus from this year's Magic Mike XXL!

We think this is an AH-Mazing followup to the duo's costume last year, where they hilariously spoofed Taylor Swift's Shake It Off music video!

Take a look at the talk show team channeling their inner strippers (above) and see what else Kelly and Michael have in store on their Halloween episode of Live! Friday at 9am ET on ABC!
