“The Voice” Season 2 is coming back in February.
The hit reality singing competition, coached by Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton and hosted by Carson Daly, will premiere its second season after the Super Bowl, NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt confirmed on Monday at NBC’s Television Critics Association Summer Session 2011 in Beverly Hills.
While it had previously been announced that “The Voice” was getting the coveted post-Super Bowl slot, Monday’s confirmation is the first time it has been revealed that that episode will also be the show’s Season 2 premiere.
The show will then move to its regular night, beginning, Monday February 6 at 8 PM ET/PT.
Following “The Voice’s” two-hour second episode, NBC will premiere its new musical show, “Smash,” starring Katharine McPhee, Anjelica Huston and former “Will & Grace” star Debra Messing, at 10 PM.
In related “Will & Grace” alumni news, Greenblatt also announced that Sean Hayes, who played Jack on the former NBC sitcom, has inked a deal with the network to star in a new sitcom.
