Dateline: The Last Day is a Peacock original docuseries that provides an intimate look into the final 24 hours of a person's life before their tragic and unexpected death. Each episode focuses on a different victim, recounting their experiences on what would ultimately be their last day alive through interviews with loved ones and investigators as well as archival footage and recreations.

The show's premiere season in 2022 examined three chilling cases across three episodes. The first installment followed Kristin Smart, a California Polytechnic State University freshman who disappeared in 1996 after attending an off-campus party. Through first-hand accounts, Dateline reconstructed Kristin's movements and interactions on the day of her disappearance, weaving together the perspectives of Kristin's parents, investigators, fellow students and the main suspect in her presumed death. The episode shed new light on the cold case that had gone unsolved for decades.

The second episode spotlighted the disturbing 2011 murder of 9-year-old Skylar Neese in West Virginia. Skylar vanished after sneaking out of her bedroom window to meet up with her two best friends, who later confessed to brutally stabbing her to death. The show provided an intimate look into Skylar's tight-knit family and her final hours alive as she spent the day hanging out with friends, unaware that they were plotting her murder.

The third story followed Mississippi teenager Lindy Sue Biechler who was found stabbed to death in her apartment in 1994. Through interviews with Lindy's loved ones and examination of the mysterious evidence from the crime scene, Dateline reconstructed the details of the 19-year-old's final hours as she ran errands and studied for exams, unaware of the killer who would take her life later that night.

By meticulously retracing the victims' last day, Dateline: The Last Day offers chilling insight into the tragic fates of these individuals who had no idea their lives were about to be cut short in such a horrifying manner. The show intimately explores the small decisions and coincidences that led them into the path of their killers, providing a haunting view into the human psyche and the incomprehensible depravity some people are capable of. Dateline's trademark attention to detail and compelling storytelling make The Last Day a binge-worthy series for true crime fans looking for an engaging new mystery to unravel.
