NBC’s hit singing competition The Voice has announced its coaching lineup for the upcoming 26th season of the show.

Season 25 of The Voice is underway, with the semi-final round set to air live tomorrow night (May 14). Three contestants were eliminated last week, creating a talent-packed Top 9 who remain in the competition. The current coaching panel is occupied by John Legend, Chance the Rapper, Dan + Shay, and Reba McEntire.

While there is still much excitement in store for the current season, major news was announced today for the next season of the show. The Season 26 coaching lineup has been revealed, and only one of the existing coaches will return to their iconic red chair.

One former coach will return to The Voice after a one-season hiatus

Popstar and wife of Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, will return for her eighth season of The Voice. Although she stepped away for the current season, she had previously coached seasons 7, 9, 12, 17, 19, 22, and 24.

Two brand-new coaches will try their luck on The Voice

In addition to Gwen Stefani, crooner Michael Bublé, and rapper Snoop Dogg were announced as coaches for the forthcoming season of The Voice. Both have been involved with the show before, with Bublé as the mentor for Team Blake in Season 3 and Snoop Dogg as a key advisor during Season 20.

Will Reba McEntire return to coach Season 26 of The Voice?

Fans will be thrilled to know that the fourth and final coach for Season 26 of The Voice is… Reba McEntire!

The country music icon will return to the show for her third consecutive season.

This means that John Legend, Chance the Rapper, and Dan + Shay will all step away from their coaching duties (at least for now).

Season 26 of The Voice will air this fall. Stay tuned for a premiere date.
