‘The Voice’ Season 22 Will Air in Fall 2022, Skipping Spring Season

We’ve gotten used to watching two seasons of The Voice per year — one in the spring, and one in the fall. It’s how the show has racked up 21 seasons so far, despite only being on the air for 10 years. However, that’s all changing in 2022, as the show moves to airing one season per year.


‘The Voice’ Moves to One Season Per Year Starting in 2022

In May, The Voice announced they will start airing one season per year going forward. NBC shared the plan while announcing the fall schedule, which included the just-finished Season 21, featuring new coach Ariana Grande.

Because of this new system, we won’t see another season next spring like we usually would. Instead, we’ll have to wait until Fall 2022 to watch the next set of talented artists take the stage for Blind Auditions. One nice thing about this plan is that the season numbers will match up with their years — Season 22 will air in 2022, Season 23 will air in 2023, and so on.

“Going into the 21st cycle in the fall, The Voice remains one of the most popular shows on television and we want to keep it that way,” said Frances Berwick, Chairman, Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “We want to eventize this iconic series. We think The Voice will be on NBC for a very long time to come and we believe the best way to protect the brand, while also superserving fans is to produce one amazing cycle this year.”

The Show Will No Longer Air at the Same Time as ‘American Idol’

Deadline points out that NBC’s change to one season of The Voice per year means it will no longer air at the same time of the year as talent show competitor American Idol. Over the years, Idol has aired one season per year in the spring. It will return for Season 20 on ABC February 27.

The decision is also similar to ABC’s choice a few years ago to air just one season of Dancing with the Stars per year, doing away with the spring seasons. Season 30 recently wrapped up, with former NBA player Iman Shumpert walking away with the Mirroball Trophy.


Other benefits to limiting the number of seasons include giving the coaches more freedom in their busy schedules, as well as letting the most recent winners bask in their victory for twice as long. Girl Named Tom just became the first group to win the show — they’ll be the reigning champions for an entire year now.
