Snoop Dogg, Michael Buble in as Season 26 Coaches

The Voice‘s 26th season is going to the Dogg.

NBC announced at its upfront presentation Monday that Snoop Dogg and Michael Bublé will join the singing competition as coaches for its 26th season in the fall. Reba McEntire and Gwen Stefani will return to the show, McEntire for her third edition of the show and Stefani for her eighth.

Both Snoop and Bublé have appeared on The Voice in the past: Snoop Dogg served as a “mega mentor” in the show’s 20th season, and Bublé was an adviser to Blake Shelton’s team back in season three.

McEntire’s return means that she’ll bookend NBC’s weeknight schedule in the fall, with The Voice on Mondays and Tuesdays and Happy’s Place, a comedy series starring the multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM award winner, set for Fridays.

The Voice is one of several collaborations between NBCUniversal and Snoop Dogg in the near future. The rapper and producer will contribute to the company’s Olympics coverage from Paris this summer, and Universal Pictures is developing a biopic about his life, with Allen Hughes set to direct and Joe Robert Cole (Black Panther) writing the screenplay. Snoop, Hughes, Brian Grazer and Sara Ramaker are producing.

Season 25 of The Voice is set to conclude on May 21.
