Or are the prophets in Zechariah 13 only the prophets of the false gods?

Luke and Hebrews both suggest that the time of the prophets has come to an end:

[Luk 16:16 NET] 16 "The law and the prophets were in force until John; since then, the good news of the kingdom of God has been proclaimed, and everyone is urged to enter it.

[Heb 1:1-3 NET] 1 After God spoke long ago in various portions and in various ways to our ancestors through the prophets, 2 in these last days he has spoken to us in a son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he created the world. 3 The Son is the radiance of his glory and the representation of his essence, and he sustains all things by his powerful word, and so when he had accomplished cleansing for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.

And Zechariah predicted that in the time of the Messiah (vs 1) God promised to "remove the prophets and the unclean spirit from the land":

[Zec 13:1-5 NET] 1 "In that day"In that day there will be a fountain opened up for the dynasty of David and the people of Jerusalem to cleanse them from sin and impurity. 2 And also on that dayAnd also on that day," says the LORD who rules over all, "I will remove the names of the idols from the land and they will never again be remembered. Moreover, I will remove the prophets and the unclean spirit from the land. 3 Then, if anyone prophesies in spite of this, his father and mother to whom he was born will say to him, 'You cannot live, for you lie in the name of the LORD.' Then his father and mother to whom he was born will run him through with a sword when he prophesies. 4 "Therefore, on that day each prophet will be ashamed of his vision when he prophesies and will no longer wear the hairy garment of a prophet to deceive the people. 5 Instead he will say, 'I am no prophet - indeed, I am a farmer, for a man has made me his indentured servant since my youth.'

He goes on to describe people avoiding becoming a prophet or even admitting it if one is one, like the plague.

So the question is, are the NT references to the end of the time of the prophets related to ZechariaZechariah 13:1-5 or is Zechariah just concerned with false prophets?
