Talpa Germany and SAT.1 have teamed up to develop The Voice Senior as part of The Voice of Germany brand currently airing on ProSieben and SAT.1.
The Voice Senior will feature contestants aged 60 and older. The setup will be similar to the original version, but with a shorter run. It begins with blind auditions, then knockouts followed by the finale. The first season is due to debut in the Netherlands in summer 2018.
The Voice Senior sees Talpa now catering to three generations of aspiring singers. The original The Voice format first premiered in the Netherlands back in 2010. It has since secured more than 67 local versions in 180 territories worldwide.
