NBC announced that The Voice will get a two-night season finale in December, with the first night leading right into a preview of its new mid-season comedy 1600 Penn.
Deadline reports that The Voice will have a two-night event to end the season. On Dec. 17, the network will air a 90-minute live performance episode from 8pm to 9:30pm. 1600 Penn’s pilot will immediately follow.
The two-hour finale, in which fans will learn the winner, will air on the following night from 9pm to 11pm.
1600 Penn stars Bill Pullman as the President of the US with a dysfunctional family. Jenna Elfman plays his First Lady, while Jason Gad plays his son.
According to Variety, the series will have its official premiere on Jan. 10 at 9:30pm.
NBC started using previews for its shows this season, airing the pilots for Go On and the now-cancelled Animal Practice during the 2012 London Summer Olympics. Go On has since been picked up for a full season.
After The Voice’s fall finale, the show will return on March 25. Usher and Shakira will be replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, who will be working on other projects this spring.
Here’s the trailer for 1600 Penn:
