Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins said the company was “very happy to go back to school with an amazing talent like John Cena.”
"Today's kids and parents are laser-focused on their family time together, so we want to give them shows and series that appeal to every member of the household," Robbins said in the Nickelodeon news release.
Cena, the World Wrestling Entertainment star, said he was "excited" to partner with Nickelodeon again. He previously hosted the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards program and also was the host of the Fox reality show, "American Grit," according to Bleacher Report.
“I can’t wait to see kids defeat grownups who find themselves back in the classroom,” Cena said.
