I kind of would love to stay but then there are external forces that are no longer in my control. There's my schedule, there's a call of Broadway and there's a call of other things. It was magical the first season because all of the stars aligned perfectly," said Salonga. On January 15, 2014 interview by Push, Salonga confirmed her return as coach in the show. "The Voice is coming back. I mean first it's okay to announce it, I have not been given the go ahead yet to say anything yet but I am certainly coming back so my chair is going to turning again for people so I am excited," she said. Salonga also confirmed that there were rumors that apl.de.ap will not return to the show. She commented, "As for Season 2, I have no idea what the plans are for Apl if he is going to return, I hope he does because over the first season the four of us have developed a really nice rapport and banter and chemistry and it would be nice to pick up where we left off rather than start over but those things are not up to me. So I am only hoping that he returns for Season 2 if he doesn't we hope we find somebody who will be able to fit the chair and be able to keep up with us because the three of us are on, it is so on, it is just the trash talking begins." It was noted that near the end of the first season, apl.de.ap along with Bamboo Mañalac had expressed their intentions to return for the second season.
