SKE48's 4th generation debuted in September 2010. 16 new Kenkyuusei were added to the group, bringing the total number of Kenkyuusei to 26.

On December 6, 2010, SKE48 announced the creation of Team E, using 16 kenkyuusei. 4 members of Team KII, Iguchi Shiori, Uchiyama Mikoto, Kit Momona and Saito Makiko were moved to Kenkyuusei. 4 remaining members of Kenkyuusei, Abiru Riho, Goto Risako, Hata Sawako and Yakata Miki were moved to Team KII.
