Former “Wonder Woman” Star Lynda Carter to Appear in “Supergirl”


Michael Tran/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) — Wonder Woman, meet Supergirl!

Lynda Carter, who played the super-powered Amazonian princess in the 1970s TV series, will play the president of the United States in a recurring role on CW’s Supergirl, Variety reports.

Carter starred in Wonder Woman from 1975 to 1979, in what was then the first female superhero ever on American television — paving the way for Xena: Warrior Princess, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and now, Melissa Benoist as Superman’s super-powered Kryptonian cousin, Kara Zor-El.  

After spending its freshman season on CBS, Supergirl season two premieres on the CW October 10 at 8 p.m. ET.
