Adam Levine will not return to NBC’s singing competition “The Voice” for its 17th season this fall. The Maroon 5 frontman addressed his departure in a post on Instagram, in which he posted his thanks to producer Mark Burnett, NBC, host Carson Daly, bandleader Paul Mirkovich, the crew, the show’s fans, his fellow coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and “my brother for life” Blake Shelton” and “the people behind the scenes who do the real work and make this machine hum.”

Levine, whose contestants have won the show three times since it began in 2011, wrote that it “was time to move on” but did not indicate any specific future plans.

Gwen Stefani, who was a coach on the show in 2014 and 2015, returns to join Legend, Clarkson and boyfriend Shelton this fall.
