Now in its 32nd season, Dateline NBC has already produced some pulse-pounding true crime tales in the first few weeks of 2024, and fans are eager to solve the next puzzle.

But will fans get a new episode to get wrapped up in this Friday, January 26? 

Is there a new Dateline this Friday, January 26, 2024? 

Unfortunately, the answer is no, there is no new episode of Dateline NBC on Friday, January 26. The show returns with a new episode on Friday, February 2.

Where can I watch past episodes of Dateline

Until new episodes of the NBC newsmagazine return, mystery fans can catch up on past episodes of Dateline, streaming now on Peacock

Already in 2024, Dateline has presented the baffling case involving Texas jewelry store owner Corey Shaughnessy, who woke up to gunshots in her bedroom, then stumbled into the kitchen and found her husband of 30 years dead on the floor. The case would take a series of surprising twists and turns before a sinister plot was uncovered that left even veteran Dateline correspondent Andrea Canning stunned.

Dateline fans also caught up on the shocking murder of law professor Dan Markel and the latest arrest in the case, which landed a grandmother in jail. In a jetway takedown that Dateline correspondent Dennis Murphy called a “free-for-all,” Donna Adelson, the matriarch of a wealthy Florida family, was the latest to be implicated in the cold-blooded murder-for-hire plot that left her former son-in-law dead.

The next mystery is sure to be just as compelling as those that have come before it, but devoted fans will have to wait just a little bit longer to see which case Dateline will take on next. 

Will an older episode of Dateline air on Friday, January 26, 2024?

In place of Dateline, NBC will air part of the 2024 Prevagen U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Friday, January 26. The women’s free skate starts at 8 p.m. on NBC.
