EXO-200 is a single phase liquid xenon detector designed to search for neutrinoless double-beta decay of?136Xe to the ground state of?136Ba. We report here on a search for the two-neutrino double-beta decay of?136Xe to the first?0+?excited state,?0+1, of?136Ba based on a 100 kg?yr exposure of?136Xe. Using a specialized analysis employing a machine learning algorithm, we obtain a 90% CL half-life sensitivity of?1.7×1024?yr. We find no statistically significant evidence for the?2νββ?decay to the excited state resulting in a lower limit of?T2ν1/2?(0+→0+1)?>6.9×1023?yr at 90% CL. This observed limit is consistent with the estimated half-life of?2.5×1025?yr.
