‘The Voice’ Season 23 Coaches Announced: 2 New Coaches Join the Show

Season 23 Coaches The Voice

NBC Season 23 of "The Voice" will feature two new coaches.

Season 23 of “The Voice” is set to air in the spring of 2023, and the new season will feature two brand new faces to the coaching panel.

Three coaches from season 22 of the show will not be making their return next season: John Legend, Camila Cabello, and Gwen Stefani will all be stepping away from the coaching panel for at least one season. Blake Shelton is the only coach from season 22 who is set to make their return.

NBC announced in a statement that season 23 would be airing in the spring of 2023.

Blake Shelton will be returning for his 23rd season of “The Voice,” which is also set to be his last. He will be joined by two newcomers and one returning coach.

Kelly Clarkson is also making her return after one season away. Clarkson originally stepped away because she wanted to take the summer off, and she previously nearly let it slip that she’d be returning.

“I am so excited to be back with my Voice family!,” Clarkson said in the release. “Let’s do this, Team Kelly!”

The first new coach for the season is Chance the Rapper. He has never been on “The Voice,” but it appears he will be joining the panel for the upcoming season. According to the press release, Chance is “lauded by his peers and critics alike for his unique rise to success” and he is “not signed to a major label.”

“I’m thrilled to join ‘The Voice’ as a coach for the next season,” he said in the release. “I’m excited to help other artists get to the next level and make the most of this life-changing experience. Get ready for #teamchance.”

Niall Horan is filling the last gap on the panel and rounding everything out. Horan is at a great spot in his career to join “The Voice,” having gone out on his own after spending time in One Direction. He’ll likely fill the slot that would usually be filled by Gwen Stefani with a mix of pop and indie sounds.

Horan will also be able to bond with Clarkson over their shared past on singing competitions. He became part of One Direction after auditioning for X Factor.

“I’m excited to be joining this season of ‘The Voice’ as a coach,” Horan said “I’m looking forward to meeting and mentoring the new crop of talent while we battle it out with the other teams!”

NBC Has Not Officially Announced Season 23 for the Spring But Evidence Points to Early 2023 Air Dates

In late September 2022, tickets to live tapings for “The Voice” Blind Auditions were released dated in mid-October. Filming for “The Voice” season 22 Blind Auditions wrapped up months ago, and generally, filming for a spring season of the series starts filming in October or November for a February premiere date.

That means it’s likely that “The Voice” is headed back to two seasons per year.

Currently, the taping schedule includes the dates October 13, 14, 15, and 16, and the description reads “The Voice – Season 23 Blind Auditions.”

All tapings will take place at Universal Studios in Hollywood, and the dates likely mean the Battle and Knockout Rounds will film in November and December.

“The Voice” airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.
