Saturday Night Live Wiki

Season 29 had to overcome the departures of fan favorites Will Ferrell, Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon, Chris Kattan and Tracy Morgan, who all left the show the past two seasons. Two new cast members were added to the season were Finesse Mitchell and former Nickelodeon All That and Kenan & Kel star Kenan Thompson. The season premiere was on October 4, 2003 and was hosted by Jack Black. The season finale, which was hosted by the Olsen Twins on May 15, 2004, was the final episode for Jimmy Fallon, who had been with the cast since 1998.

Will Forte, Seth Meyers and Jeff Richards were all promoted to repertory status, while Fred Armisen remained a feature player.

The set is changed with the doors with lines on them. It had the clock on the top of the audience. The clock says Grand Central Terminal. The opening montage is changed. It featured Subways, Restaurants, Parties, and Everything else that was in New York.

This was the final season for both Jeff Richards (who quit mid-season over creative differences) and Jimmy Fallon, who had been with the cast since Season 24.
