Not too long ago, The Voice crowned the sibling trio Girl Named Tom the winner of season 21 and made history. Now, fans of the NBC singing competition series are getting antsy after no new episodes premiered this spring. That said, The Voice will be returning in the near future but it won't look quite the same.

Keep on reading to find out more important information about the next season of The Voice, which is shaking up its previous coaching lineup comprising of Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Ariana Grande.

When is The Voice returning to NBC for season 22?

The Voice is officially coming back to NBC for season 22 in fall 2022. On May 13, Blake was the first to announce that the show was returning for new episodes with a TikTok. Although a premiere date for The Voice season 22 hasn't been announced yet, the country music singer confirmed that it would be when the leaves turn brown. “#duet this if you’re going to be a coach on #TheVoice this fall..,” he captioned a TikTok. The show will most likely come back with new episodes in the fall around September.

The news comes after The Voice didn't return to NBC with new episodes this February/March. Since its official debut in April 2011, The Voice has had two cycles every year (spring and fall). But in May 2021, ahead of the season 20 finale, NBC announced that The Voice would only be airing one season per year starting in 2022. Now, more than a decade in, the network is thinking of the hit show’s longevity.

“Going into the 21st cycle in the fall, The Voice remains one of the most popular shows on television and we want to keep it that way,” said Frances Berwick, Chairman of Entertainment Networks at NBCUniversal Television, according to Deadline. “We want to eventize this iconic series. We think The Voice will be on NBC for a very long time to come and we believe the best way to protect the brand, while also superserving fans is to produce one amazing cycle this year.”

Who are The Voice season 22 coaches?

The Voice season 22 coaches are Blake Shelton, John Legend, Gwen Stefani and newcomer Camila Cabello. The Cuban singer-songwriter is replacing Kelly Clarkson, who joined The Voice in February 2018 for season 14. She appeared on the series for eight seasons.

When Blake revealed that The Voice would be premiering in the fall, he also encouraged others to duet his TikTok set to MIKA's single "Grace Kelly," a song popular on the social media app. Shortly after, John posted a clip of himself singing alongside the "Comeback as a Country Boy" artist. Then, Blake's wife and No Doubt leading lady, Gwen, shared that she was also returning to The Voice with her own singing snippet. The GXVE beauty entrepreneur was previously a coach on the NBC series for five other seasons, including 7, 9, 12, 17 and 19.

Last but not least, Camila confirmed her attendance with a brief but telling cameo in a TikTok duet. With that, it was official that The Kelly Clarkson Show host and season 21 coach Ariana Grande would be departing from The Voice. The American Idol alum hasn't addressed her leaving the show as of right now. Although there were concerns from fans that Blake or John might have made an exit announcement ahead of season 22, Kelly's departure isn't completely out of the blue.

The American Song Contest cohost previously shared that she wanted to spend more time with her kids (7-year-old daughter River and 6-year-old son Remington) — even if it meant switching up her schedule to do so. As for Ariana leaving The Voice, she recently shared that she was focusing all of her energy on her upcoming musical movie, Wicked.
