The new season is called 'Season of Eternal Conflict' and Blizzard has already revealed some of the games new content additions and quality-of-life changes in a recent blog post .
One of the big takeaways from the blog was that throughout Season 19 all Seasonal players will benefit from the Pandemonium buff.
"For each stack of this buff, you’ll receive a small boost to movement speed and bonus damage, ultimately capping out at 50% movement speed and 100% damage at 1000 stacks.
"In addition, reaching certain killstreak goals will trigger a special effect and cause even more mayhem on the battlefield.

The blog also highlighted some key learnings the developers have taken away from the community throughout Season 18.
"This Season, we’re taking action on the great feedback we received from the community about Season 18’s Triune buff."
"With the killstreak mechanic, we can make sure the benefit is always traveling with you and something you won’t have to constantly reposition for.
"There’s still more room for exploration and innovation in the future, and in the meantime, we challenge you to push these killstreaks to their limits and discover its ultimate reward! We think you’ll find it devilishly delightful."
