“Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?” That’s a question John Cena is about to find out as the WWE star takes over hosting duties for a Nickelodeon reboot of the game show. Production will begin this spring, with the debut to take place later this year, according to Thursday’s press release. Acting also as executive producer, Cena says he’s excited about the gig, adding, “And I can’t wait to see kids defeat grownups who find themselves back in the classroom.” Cena is no stranger to the kid’s network, having served as host of their annual Kids’ Choice Awards in 2017 and 2018.
