Late night host Jimmy Kimmel is returning to Austin for South by Southwest this year.

Kimmel, whose show airs weeknights at 10:35 p.m. on ABC, will tape five episodes at the Long Center March 16-20, producers and SXSW officials announced today.

The show taped at Long Center for a week last year during SXSW, as well.

“We had so much fun in Austin last year, we’re doing it again,” Kimmel said in an ABC news release. “This time we might never come back.”

Guests haven’t been announced yet. Neither have ticketing details.

Last year’s guests included Snoop Dogg, Lady Gaga, Seth Rogen, Willie Nelson and Gov. Rick Perry.
