The Voice is known for switching up its group of coaches and now it’s about to happen again.
Deadline reports that Miley Cyrus will be taking a break next season, and will be replaced by fan-favorite Gwen Stefani, who was on seasons 7 and 9. Cyrus will, however, return for season 13 in the fall. This also means that NBC is planning to renew the reality singing competition for two more seasons, which is great news for fans.
“We can’t wait to experience the unique chemistry and energy Gwen, Alicia, Blake and Adam will bring to season 12,” Paul Telegdy, President of Alternative and Reality Group at NBC Entertainment told Deadline. “With Miley returning for season 13, we’re truly ecstatic about the unmatched musical know-how and talent coming together in our coming seasons.”
Keys will keep her seat in the big red chair and be complimented by the “Make Me Like You” singer as the second female. With Keys and Stefani coaching, season 12 will be the second consecutive season to feature two male and two female coaches, which is huge.
Despite the fact that the boys are the top two coaches, the girls have definitely shown they’re here to stay. Currently Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys are the two other coaches on The Voice, but next season one is taking a break, but she’ll be back!
Deadline also reported that the show’s host, Carson Daly will be returning for the next season, which is set to begin in February 2017.
Season 11 of The Voice currently airs Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.
