NBC Renews 'The Voice' for Seasons 4 and 5
Tuesday, September 25, 2012
The big red chairs
will continue to spin through the end of 2013. Today NBC officially
renewed its smash hit reality competition series The Voice for two more seasons.
The renewal for season 4 is no big surprise as the show has already made plans for the spring edition, including swapping out coaches Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green with newcomers Shakira and Usher.
The Voice season 5 will air next fall, continuing the show's new format of two seasons per year. There is no word yet on which of the six coaches will be involved in season 5.
After hitting a season high of 13.6 million viewers for last Tuesday's blind auditions episode, The Voice's season 3 ratings hit a bit of a bump Monday against Dancing with the Stars, dropping to 11.9 million viewers. However, the show was the clear winner in the coveted 18-49 demographic, giving NBC something to be very happy about.
The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
