Everything you need to know about The Voice Season 24

When one country music star quits, another one comes in. Before The Voice Season 24 began, fans already knew that OG coach Blake Shelton would be leaving NBC's reality music competition series. To soften the blow, the network announced on May 15 that Shelton's friend Reba McEntire would take over his rotating red throne. "There's a new coach in town! See you this fall!" the "Fancy" singer commented on the show's announcement on Instagram, adding that she was "so excited" for the gig.

Before most recently serving as Super Mentor for Season 23, McEntire's history with the Emmy-winning series dates back to Season 1, when she served as Team Blake's combat advisor. “It’s so fun to be back on ‘The Voice ,’” McEntire said on “The Jennifer Hudson Show” in March. “It’s always fun to give advice because I study how people are performing and I want to be moved when they sing to me.”

She definitely has a lot of opportunities now. With another season officially confirmed, here's everything there is to know about The Voice Season 24 so far.

Who are the coaches on The Voice Season 24?

In addition to McEntire, EGOT winner John Legend will return to The Voice as his Red Button coach after a brief hiatus on the show from seasons 16 to 22. They will also be competing against Shelton's wife, six-season veteran Gwen Stefani, who wrote: "Surprised :) I'm back in the big red chair!! ” on Instagram, with Season 23 newcomer Niall Horan.

“I loved it so much I would do it again!” the former One Direction bandmate tweeted on May 15 — recently explaining to NBC Insider that he joined the show because he loved “being on the show” Looking for new talent online” and other reasons. "I really want to be a part of that and find a new group of talent that we can develop and allow them to build careers," he said.

However, Horan will be the only coach returning for Season 23, as Kelly Clarkson and Chance the Rapper will be absent from this rotation. In Clarkson's case, her daytime talk show "The Kelly Clarkson Show " will move production to New York City in the fall, making it nearly impossible for her to film "The Voice" in Los Angeles at the same time. Although the reason why Chance the Rapper is not returning for Season 24 has not been made public, it is not uncommon for musicians to come and go between seasons and it is still possible that he could return in the future.

When is The Voice Season 24 premiere date?

NBC has set to premiere Season 24 of The Voice in the fall of 2023, but a specific return date has not yet been announced. Fans can safely bet, though, that they'll see the judges' chairs rotate again around the third week of September.
