Fans of The Voice will soon see a very familiar face as Adam Levine, one of the original coaches on the singing competition series, is set to make his long-awaited return and reclaim his chair next year.

The Maroon 5 frontman is returning to The Voice for season 27, which will premiere in spring 2025, alongside returning coaches John Legend and Michael Bublé, who makes his debut in season 26 later this year, as well as first-time coach Kelsea Ballerini, per Entertainment Tonight. Levine was one of the four original coaches — which included Blake Shelton, CeeLo Green and Christina Aguilera — when the show premiered in 2011, racking up multiple wins throughout 16 seasons as a coach before departing the show in 2019.

Levine shared the news in an Instagram post on Wednesday (June 5), writing, "the OG is back in the building!" and he "can't wait" to return and build a new "#TeamAdam."

The video opens with several comments calling for the "Moves Like Jagger" musician to come back, including one from Shelton, who had a hilarious rivalry with Levine during their tenure together on the show.

"I'm so excited, I cannot wait. I'm well rested, I'm ready to go... It's gonna be awesome, let's go!" Levine said in the video. "Team Adam is back. I feel bad for other teams," he added with a smile, continuing on to say that "Season 27 is going to be different."

Though viewers won't see Levine coaching on The Voice until next year, they can tune in to season 26 in the meantime when it premieres this fall.
