WWE Superstar John Cena is returning to host the 2018 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards and is working with the network on two additional projects, including a brand-new competition series titled Keep It Spotless. Cena will also take on hosting duties for the upcoming Kids Choice Awards for the second time.
With the announcement, Cena becomes the third host behind Whitney Houston and Rosie O'Donnell to host the ceremony back to back years.
Cena will lend his voice to an original villain named Baron Draxum in the 2D-animated series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, set to premiere later this year.
John Cena gets a famously passionate mixed response from WWE fans every time he hits the stage, but he remains a huge draw for younger fans.
No word on whether Cena will be shown in front of the camera on his gameshow. Cena will also executive produce the new competition series Keep It Spotless.
The ceremony of the Kids' Choice Awards 2018 will be held on March 24 at The Forum, an enclosure located in the Californian city of Inglewood, United States.
"The Kids' Choice Awards generate that same emotion and experience". That character, Baron Draxum, is described as "an alchemist warrior mutant who seeks to turn all of humanity into mutants", and will appear in the premiere before recurring throughout the first season.
You can find the description of the new series below.
Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is co-executive produced by Andy Suriano (character designer, Samurai Jack) and Ant Ward (supervising producer, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) at Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif.
