And The View wants to see the series go out in style.

ABC's daytime talk show announced Wednesday that it will air a special episode dedicated to the series, hours before its swansong.

The View Salutes ‘One Life to Live' will pay tribute to the 43-year-old series with exclusive footage of the final taping, interviews with returning cast members and packaged clips from the series most memorable moments.
