It will be situated in the center of Austin, Texas throughout the run of the SXSW festival with appearances by actors Bob Odenkirk and Giancarlo Esposito also rumored as they are set to speak during the official schedule too.

Better Call Saul began in 2015 on Netflix, a spin off of Breaking Bad featuring its lovable but crooked lawyer Saul/Jimmy. It tells the story of what ultimately lead to him working with teacher turned drug baron Walter White - and may take the story beyond the conclusion of Breaking Bad.
