Blake Shelton Says He’s Leaving “The Voice” After Next Season

“The Voice”‘s longest-serving coach Blake Shelton announced Tuesday that he is leaving the show after its 23rd season.

“I’ve been wrestling with this for a while and I’ve decided it’s time for me to step away from ‘The Voice’ after next season,” Shelton wrote in a statement. “This show has changed my life for the better in every way and it will always feel like home for me.”

Shelton has been a coach on The Voice since its inception in 2011 and this is one of its most successful, having brought 31 singers to the show’s finals since its fifth season. Eight of his singers have won one season.

He wrote, “I have a special thanks to the singers – ‘Voice’ who come to this stage every season and amaze us with their talent and who chose me as their coach.”

He reflected on his “lifelong bond” with host Carson Daly, wife and fellow coach Gwen Stefani, whom he began dating in 2015 and later married in 2021, and other past coaches. The country music star also thanked fans “who watch and support these artists, we coaches and everyone at ‘The Voice’ who is chasing their dreams.”

“It wouldn’t happen without you!” He has written.

The Voice is currently in its 22nd season. Season 23 will air in 2023.
