Season 10 of Saturday Night Live was a transition year. Robin Duke, Tim Kazurinsky, Brad Hall, Eddie Murphy, and Joe Piscopo were all gone from the previous season. Producer Dick Ebersol bought in several big names to fill out the cast, including Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, Rich Hall, Martin Short, Pamela Stephenson, and the returning Harry Shearer.
No one carried over to season 11, including producer Ebersol. For season 11, Lorne Michaels returned and constructed an entirely new cast.
