Deadline is reporting that season 12 will debut on February 27, 2017.
It’s official! The TODAY Show announced this morning that Gwen will be return to NBC’s The Voice for upcoming season 12 and will be joined by fellow coaches Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Alicia Keys. Gwen has continued to express her love and interest to return to the hit show which she’s been absent for over the last two seasons. Season 12 will premiere in February 2017 with live tapings of the Blind Auditions starting early as next week on October 22. Fans are able to request tickets to the tapings on 1iota.com.
President of NBC Paul Telegdy said in a new statement that he can’t wait “to experience the unique chemistry and energy Gwen, Alicia, Blake, and Adam will bring to season 12” reports Entertainment Weekly. Host Carson Daly shared on his radio show that Gwen was asked back partly due to fan demand stating, “Twitter [was] continually begging us to bring her back.” Gwen is such a dynamic force and has proved herself over her past two seasons that she’s such a strong mentor and contender on the show. She first made her debut on The Voice back in season 7 making it to the Semi Final Round with artist Taylor John Williams and all the way to the Live Finale with artist Jeffrey Austin in season 9.

Season 11 coach Miley Cyrus is already confirmed back for season 13 with the rest of the cast being announced at a later date.
Gwen most recently returned to the show during season 10 to help mentor Team Blake and also performed both “Misery” and “Go Ahead and Break My Heart” earlier this year. We’re hoping Gwen has another single coming soon to promote on the show!
Many fans were anticipating Gwen’s return and we’re really excited to see her back on The Voice! We also have a feeling that many will be tuning in to see Gwen and Blake together again on the show.
