Less than a year since her retirement from television, Barbara Walters will return to ABC in December to host her long-running series, "Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014," ABC News said in a statement Tuesday.

The two-hour special will feature appearances from Oprah Winfrey, Neil Patrick Harris, Chelsea Handler and Scarlett Johansson, among others.

The opportunity to interview her favorite celebrities one more time seems to have been just too great an opportunity for Walters to pass up.

"I was absolutely delighted when ABC approached me to do another year of ‘10 Most Fascinating People,'” she said. “I know we said last year was our last, but there are just too many fascinating people out there."

This isn't the first time Walters has made her way back onto the screen post-retirement. She returned to "The View" in June and then again for a special edition of "20/20" to interview Peter Rodger, the father of the University of California, Santa Barbara shooter Elliot Rodger.
