Wonder Woman is an American television series based on the DC Comics comic book character Wonder Woman, created by William Moulton Marston. It starred Lynda Carter as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman and Lyle Waggoner as Steve Trevor. The series Wonder Woman had its origins in the television movie The New, Original Wonder Woman (1975) starring Carter. In the movie, set during World War II, Wonder Woman matched the original comic book character. It aired on ABC and its success led the network to order two more one hour episodes, which aired several weeks apart. That success led ABC to order an additional 11 episodes and place the show in regular rotation. The program aired weekly, on Wednesday nights in early 1976. Although the show was successful on ABC, the network was reluctant to renew the series for a second season. Wonder Woman was set in the 1940s and was therefore more expensive to produce than a series set in the present day. CBS picked up the show in 1977 and retooled it, setting it in the present day. The show continued an additional two seasons on CBS.
