Although forbidden to participate in the selection process, Diana joins secretly and wins the right and responsibility to go.

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. CBS ultimately decided to strengthen its sitcom offerings and no further episodes of Wonder Woman were produced. The series was ultimately canceled in 1979. See more »
Throughout the first season, secondary characters and extras sport hairstyles and sometimes clothing that looked more from the 1970s, when the series was filmed, than from the 1940s, in which the series was set. See more »
As a young male, I found Wonder Woman entertaining for two reasons-Lynda Carter was beautiful and the show was, in my opinion, as camp and as fun as the 60's Batman show.
I think a lot of women loved Wonder Woman because she was totally independent. She didn't need a man to help her save the day. She could beat the bad guys herself.
But, back to the show itself. Throughout the show Wonder Woman faced all kinds from regular bad guys to mad scientists. The show was very tongue-in-cheek and despite the show making me realize just how much us guys need women, I enjoyed it very much. There was the type of action you just don't see anymore on TV and plenty of original humour.
Wonder Woman was indeed wonderful.
