Unfortunately for fans of The voice, the show will not return to TV in January. In fact, it may take some time before you can see the coaches in action again. According to Fansided, Season 22 of The voice will not return until later this year.
During The voice‘s run on NBC, the show typically shows two cycles a year. In other words, there are usually two full seasons of The voice to air on NBC over the course of a year, one in the spring and the other in the fall. However, the network is changing things. In May 2021, NBC revealed that they were moving The voice to one cycle per year, per Deadline.
“Going into the 21st cycle this fall, The voice remains one of the most popular TV shows, and we want to keep it that way, “said Frances Berwick, president of Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, at the time.” We want to create events in this iconic series. We think The voice “will be on NBC for a very long time to come, and we believe that the best way to protect the brand while providing us with super-server fans is to produce a great cycle this year.”
The 21st season of The voice was sent last fall. The season featured recurring coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Blake Shelton along with the newest coach, Ariana Grande. When it was first announced that Grande was with The voice, she posted a statement on social media in which she expressed that she was “excited, honored, excited” about joining Legend, Clarkson and Shelton as coaches. In the end, Team Kelly’s girl named Tom came out with the victory in season 21. The group consisted of siblings Bekah, Joshua and Caleb Liechty.
After their victory, Girl Named Tom marked a historic first place for the show as they became the first non-solo act to win the competition. The girl named Tom spoke Entertainment tonight after the finale to reflect on the historical moment. While talking to the business, Caleb said that when it came to their victory, they were “speechless”. He added that the experience has “been amazing, the outpouring of love from the fans. It’s something we will take with us forever.”
