Wonder Woman (2017) is not in continuity with Wonder Woman (TV series 1975-1979). But what if they were? Wonder Woman (2017) is set in Paris in 2017, though the vast majority of the action takes place in 1918. The first season of Wonder Woman (1975) is set in 1942, the later seasons in the present (1978-79). Both time periods have Lyle Waggoner as Major Steve Trevor (1942) and Steve Trevor Jr (1978).

More ridiculous attempts to fill out this irrelevant corner of the Wonder-verse from me if they bother to fill out her century of backstory, or if they reboot the character.
(As to Wonder Woman: I liked it; did we need another origin story?; perhaps too much slow motion in the action sequences; and hiding Trevor’s words to reveal later seemed unnecessary.)
Watch This: For a pretty cool Superhero adventure which foregrounds some ideas about love and sacrifice that these films usually ignore
Don’t Watch This: If Wonder Woman beating up a lot of people in 1918 sounds boring.
