Season Chronology
Previous Season 21
Next Season 23

Season 22 ran from the fall of 1996 to the spring of 1997.

Season 21 cast members Nancy Walls and David Koechner had been dropped at the end of the season, and David Spade had followed through with a planned exit. Chris Kattan was promoted to repertory status, and Ana Gasteyer and Tracy Morgan were hired as repertory players. This marks the last time to date that cast members were hired directly into repertory status; all repertory players who have followed started as featured players and were promoted.
