Most of America’s TV-loving public are fans of NBC’s hit singing competition show The Voice, and it has officially been renewed for another season this fall with a big change up in the coaches.
Having a hard time wrapping my head around @adamlevine not being at @NBCTheVoice anymore. After 16 seasons that changed both of ours lives. I only found out about this yesterday and it hasn’t set in on me yet. Gonna miss working with that idiot.

Since the beginning, two coaches have always appeared on the show, with the other two seats being rotated between both past and new coaches. Those two permanent coaches were Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.
But, after the 16th season in Spring 2019 – Adam Levine decided it would be his last.
About 8 years ago, Mark Burnett convinced us to sign up for this show where you sit in a big red chair with your back turned away from the singers on the stage. First thank you must go to Mark. ❤️ We had no idea what… https://t.co/XjbaOu55PR

Found out last night about @adamlevine leaving The Voice & while I get that he’s been doing the show 4 a while & wants to step away, it will be weird showing up 4 work & he’s not there ? To start an amazing show from the ground up is a big deal!

Without missing a beat, the producers were able to get another familiar face to assume his spot for this season – and now all four chairs are filled!
Gwen has appeared as a coach on three seasons before and that’s even where she met her longtime boyfriend, Blake Shelton! This will be John’s second season and Kelly‘s fourth consecutive run as a coach.

With all the buzz and excitement surrounding the upcoming 17th season, many have been asking when it will return.
Traditionally, as American television seasons go, there will be a Fall season that debuts in mid-to-late September, and a Spring season that airs sometime in February.
The previous two seasons first aired on September 24th, 2018 (Fall), and February 25th, 2019 (Spring). And now, finally, the network has announced when we will get to see the first episode of blind auditions for this upcoming 17th season!
