It’s official: “The Voice” is returning next month.

Following a season that saw a historic win, “The Voice” comes back for its 20th season on March 1, the show announced Monday on Twitter.

The show confirmed that “Voice” coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend will all be returning, with Nick Jonas — who first appeared as a coach for the show’s 18th season — filling in for Gwen Stefani.

Fifteen-year-old Carter Rubin, who in December became the youngest male singer to ever win “The Voice,” shared his excitement for the new season.

“To everyone in season 20: make the most of every moment and have SO much fun!” he wrote on Twitter. “I’ll be cheering you on.”

What to expect

  • On Monday, “The Voice” also announced on Twitter that artists Brandy, Dan and Shay, Luis Fonsi and Darren Criss would be the celebrity mentors for the show’s 20th season.
  • “The Voice” first announced in November that Jonas would be taking Stefani’s place for the 20th season, the Deseret News reported. Stefani, who has been an on-and-off coach on the show for five seasons, has never stayed for two seasons in a row.
  • “I’m back and ready to win this thing,” Jonas posted on Twitter at the time. (The other “Voice” coaches have victories to their names; Season 20 could potentially be Jonas’ first win).
  • Based on previous seasons, “The Voice” will likely have a two-hour premiere block that airs at 7 p.m. MT on March 1.
  • The new season comes after good ratings for Season 19, which averaged 7.4 million viewers, according to TV Line.
