The universe of “Riverdale” is about to expand.

Andy Cohen is set to guest star on the CW hit series in March, and individual close to the production told TheWrap. Of course, Cohen also tweeted the news (see below). The “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” host will begin filming later this week.

The network told TheWrap that Cohen “will be playing himself.He’s an old friend of the Lodges who has come to Riverdale to offer Hermione [Marisol Nichols] a helping hand.”

A helping hand with what, we wonder — with keeping headstrong Veronica in line? Or maybe with dealing with matters of the heart, as Hermione’s relationship with her husband and Fred Andrews (Luke Perry) has been decidedly strained of late.

Cohen’s IRL pal Mark Consuelos plays Hiram Lodge, so it should be a fun cameo to watch. Plus, we can totally imagine Veronica (Camila Mendes) bragging about knowing the Bravo stalwart to the rest of the crew.

Entertainment Weekly first reported the news of Cohen’s guest appearance.

You can watch “Riverdale” Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
