Shakira may be leaving The Voice after season four this summer… But it won’t be for long.
The 36-year-old Colombian singer and current coach on the hit NBC singing competition has finalized a deal to return to The Voice for season six in the spring of 2014.
As announced earlier this week, Christina Aguilera will be returning to the red leather chair she vacated after the first three seasons, making way for Shakira to join the panel.
But after taking a cycle off to focus on her music, Aguilera is coming back for season five of The Voice this fall.
Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will continue and stay on the show for the next two seasons.
“It is almost all done and the network is looking to make the official announcements in the next few days,” a source told Deadline.com.
The fifth season of the show has already been fully cast and filming on the Blind Auditions portion of the season is set to begin on July 8.
