Reunited, and it will soon feel so good!

NBC announced on Tuesday morning that it has renewed The Voice for Season 12 and Season 13, confirming along with this news the identity of the show’s coaches for both upcoming seasons.

And Gwen Stefani will be making her return for Season 12, joining boyfriend Blake Shelton on the competition’s red-chaired panel.

Miley Cyrus, who joined the program this year, will sit out that season, but return for Season 13.

“We can’t wait to experience the unique chemistry and energy Gwen, Alicia, Blake and Adam will bring to Season 12,” Paul Telegdy, NBC President of Alternative and Reality Group, said in a statement.

“With Miley returning for Season 13, we’re truly ecstatic about the unmatched musical know-how and talent coming together in our coming seasons.”

No premiere date has yet been set for The Voice Season 12.

But with Season 13 set for the fall of 2017, it’s safe to assume Season 12 will air some time next spring, likely kicking off in February.

The Voice Tandem

Stefani first signed on as a coach for season 7 and came back for season 9.

It was impossible for viewers to miss the sparks that flew between her and Shelton in the autumn of last year, just a few months after both filed for divorce; from Gavin Rossdale and Miranda Lambert, respectively.

Stefani then served as an advisor for Shelton’s squad on Season 10.

By that point, her relationship with the country crooner was public knowledge.

In fact, Stefani and Shelton celebrated their one-year anniversary just a few days ago.

At this point, it seems almost impossible to remember a time when they were NOT dating, doesn’t it?

(For those wondering, yes, Carson Daly will be continuing on as the host of the NBC singing competition for all foreseeable seasons.)

There’s been talk that Stefani and Shelton are pondering both getting married and having a baby, although this talk has not emanated from either of the stars themselves.

They seem pretty content to just hang out and have fun.

The relationship is serious, but not wedding-bells or baby-showers serious, that’s all.

As for the addition of Cyrus for this season? And the influx of aspiring singers?

Some have been calling Season 11 the very best season of The Voice to date.

Miley has brought fresh energy and a new perspective, while the chemistry between Levine and Shelton is as strong as ever.

Few artists out there possess the sort of vocal chops as Keys has in her lungs and throat, making her as respected a coach within the industry as The Voice could ever find.

Plus, the daughter of a Full House star auditioned and joined Adam’s team!

It’s been a fun season all around.

We can’t wait to see what the future brings.
