Wonder Woman 1984 will be released on Christmas in theaters and on HBO Max, allowing viewers the opportunity to watch the big budget blockbuster from the comfort of their own homes. And just in case you are counting down the minutes until you get to see Gal Gadot reprise her role as the Amazonian goddess, why not check out the TV series responsible for bringing the character to the masses: Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman.
HBO Max announced the news to the world in an official tweet, welcoming Carter to the streaming service’s DC Comics-inspired content.
The original Diana Prince herself also sent out a message to fans via twitter (which was quickly retweeted by Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, who is glad to sing the praises of Carter and the original series any chance she gets) which includes a screen capture of one of the actor’s signature twirls.
Wonder Woman originally aired for three seasons (totaling 59 episodes) from 1975 to 1979 on ABC. Along with Carter, the series also starred Lyle Waggoner as Steve Trevor in the first season and Steve Trevor, Jr. in the remaining two seasons after the setting was moved from World War II to the present day.
If you don’t get HBO Max, the complete Wonder Woman series was released on blu-ray over the summer, so you can still enjoy the originals.
