Diablo 3 Season 24
Diablo 3 Season 24 is expected to start at some point this Summer. Diablo's seasons range anywhere from around 70 days to 130 days, which means we can't really place exactly when Season 24 will start.
The two most recent seasons lasted for 128 days, which means this season likely will run for the same amount of time.
Season 23 started on April 2, 2021,
so we expect this season to run till early August, with Season 24 starting on August 5 or August 12.
[UPDATE - Blizzard has confirmed Diablo 3 Season 24 starts on July 23 at 5PM PDT/CEST/KST]
Of course, this date could end up changing due to the COVID-19 pandemic and getting delayed further into August or September. The season might also end up shorter, finishing in July.
