BURBANK, Calif.– Nickelodeon announced today that WWE Superstar John Cena is returning to host the 2018 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards for the second time, while also breaking new ground at the network with two firsts.

Cena will get into character by lending his voice to an original villain named Baron Draxum in the brand-new 2D animated series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, premiering late 2018; and is executive producing the brand-new competition series, Keep It Spotless, where teams of kids go head-to-head in a battle to stay clean.

"John Cena is one of the biggest stars in the world. Kids just love him, which makes him the perfect partner for these upcoming projects," said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group. "His blend of humor and originality brings a fresh voice to Nickelodeon both in front of the camera and behind."

“I’m thrilled to partner with Nickelodeon on three big projects that run the range of what kids love--slime-filled live events, awesomely cool animation and competition shows where kids take their shot at being the best,” Cena said. "It’s an honor to come back a second time to host the biggest, slimiest party of the year, the Kids’ Choice Awards. Not only do I get to be a cartoon character in the new Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, but I get to be a villain, too. And to top it all off, I’m stepping behind the camera to executive produce Nick’s new competition series Keep It Spotless, which gives a whole new meaning to staying clean.”

Nickelodeon’s 2018 Kids’ Choice Awards airs live on March 24, from 8-9:30 p.m. (ET/PT), and celebrates kids’ favorites from across the worlds of film, television, music, pop culture, animation and more.
