In 1984, Carter returned to television with her first lead role in a series since Wonder Woman. Costarring Loni Anderson, Partners in Crime was an early iteration of the female-led detective show genre which is now so common. It follows the adventures of two women who become amateur detectives when they get dragged into investigating the murder of their mutual ex-husband. Cancelled after only 13 episodes, Partners in Crime aired in the fall of 1984 on NBC. Although it was cancelled somewhat prematurely, critics praised both Carter's and Anderson's performances, with fans in America and the UK responding positively.
