The Voice makes major schedule changes

Season 23 of NBC’s The Voice may be airing faster than fans expected. The show’s 22nd season is currently airing, but the coaches will be even busier next month.

In late September 2022, live recording tickets for “The Voice” blind auditions were released, dated mid-October. Filming for the blind auditions of season 22 of The Voice wrapped months ago, and generally, a spring season of the show begins filming in October or November for a February premiere date.

That said, “The Voice” is likely going back to two seasons a year.

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

All taping is taking place at Universal Studios in Hollywood, and the dates likely mean the battle and knockout rounds will be filmed in November and December.

There are still unknown variables about season 23 of The Voice, although announcements will likely be made ahead of taping for the upcoming season. One thing seems pretty clear though: John Legend won’t be on the podium.

Legend has shows in Las Vegas on two of the four Blind Audition taping dates, and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, is pregnant. The couple would have a newborn during season 23, so Legend is unlikely to be on the panel.

However, Kelly Clarkson is likely to return, although it’s unconfirmed. However, during an interview with Variety, it seems like Clarkson almost made a mistake to say she’d be back for season 23.

“I’m definitely…um, I’ll probably be back on ‘The Voice’ at some point,” she said, according to Variety, laughing awkwardly like she’d just spilled the beans. “Maybe I’ll be back on ‘The Voice’.”

The one thing that is certain each season is that Blake Shelton will be on the coaching panel.

Rotating coaches who could return include Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, Gwen Stefani and Camila Cabello, although at the time of writing none have announced they would be joining the upcoming season. It’s also possible that a trainer new to The Voice will be brought in to fill Legend’s chair.

Stefani generally doesn’t play back-to-back seasons, so some fans also count her as a returning coach.

Season 21 of The Voice ended in December 2021 and was followed by a hiatus from the show for over 6 months. Typically, the trainers begin filming for the spring season while the show’s fall season is still airing. However, in 2021, the show announced that it would only air once a year instead of twice per deadline.

That was the first time in over a decade that the show had performed one season per year.

After the “American Song Contest,” hosted by Kelly Clarkson and Snoop Dogg and taking over the slot previously held by “The Voice,” didn’t garner nearly as many ratings as “The Voice” did for the network, it did done, a return to the status quo seems possible.

At the time of writing, “American Song Contest” has not been canceled or renewed for a second season, according to TVSeriesFinale.

On May 31, 2022, the casting of “The Voice” announced a new casting call on Instagram, leading fans to believe it would return to the two-season-per-year format.

Of course, with no official announcements from NBC and no official renewal for The Voice on the platform, you should take any unofficial announcements with a pinch of salt.
