Barbara Walters just can't break away from "The View."

A little over a month after bidding farewell to the daytime talk show, the 84-year-old journalist returns.

On Friday, June 27, Walters will come back to the show she created but this time as a guest. She will be discussing her upcoming interview with Peter Rodger, the filmmaker father of Elliot Rodger. Elliot is suspected of killing six people and injuring 13 in Santa Barbara, Calif., this past month, before taking his own life.

Walters' last show as host of "The View" aired on May 16. She was on the ABC show for 17 seasons, and remains an executive producer.

Do you think it's too soon for Walters to return to the program?
