NBC just confirmed it: The Voice is coming back this fall on NBC to crown a new singing champion.

Believe it or not, this will be the 19th (!) season of the competition series since the show first premiered in April 2011. As with many past seasons, this upcoming one is mixing it up in some major ways, mainly when it comes to the coaching lineup.

Based on the info we've gathered so far, here's what to expect from the newest season of The Voice:

When will The Voice return to NBC?

Pending NBC is able to find a safe way to film during the coronavirus pandemic, season 19 of the hit show will likely return in late September and run through the middle of December. That said, NBC hasn't set a specific date yet, but we will update this post when the network makes any announcements.

Who will be the coaches of the new 2020 season?

Get ready for a switch up! While Blake Shelton, John Legend, and Kelly Clarkson are staying put, Gwen Stefani shared that she would be returning to The Voice as a coach. Gwen had periodically been a coach throughout the years and most recently left after season 17.

On social media, the No Doubt leading lady declared she "cannot wait" for the new season to begin.

Alas, this announcement was bittersweet for some viewers, particularly those who were hoping to see season 18 coach Nick Jonas back in his red chair. Reacting to the news, some Nick fans said they were "very sad" and demanded that the NBC series "bring back" the Jonas brother. Nick has yet to comment on the casting change.

How can I watch and stream The Voice season 19?

Unless NBC announces a change, The Voice will air in its usual 8 p.m. ET Monday and Tuesday night time slots on NBC. If you're unable to watch at that time or record The Voice, you can always watch full episodes on NBC.com/The-Voice the day after they air.

Alternatively, you can download the free NBC app and stream The Voice there — the feature is available for iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Echo, Amazon Alexa, Xbox One, Samsung Smart TV, Xbox 360, and Vizio TV devices.

The Voice is also available on Hulu for subscribers (but you can always try a free-month trial first).
