Diablo 3 Season 24 ended on December 5, to make way for the upcoming Season 25, the Lords of Hell Season.
It's the 25th Anniversary of Diablo, and it's also Diablo 3 Season 25, and as part of that celebration Blizzard is giving us a Season themed around the big bads of the franchise, the Lords of Hell themselves.
There are a lot of RPG's and action RPG's out there, and yet, the Diablo franchise has managed to exist for over 20 years now, and the relatively simple formula for the series has not just survived, it's thrived, to the point where it's even seen a phalanx of imitators and spiritual successors like the Torchlight games, the Path of Exile series, Grim Dawn, Wolcen, Darksiders Genesis, Warhammer Chaosbane, and a whole lot more.

If the introduction of Seasons of Mastery to WoW Classic teaches me anything, it's that you can absolutely introduce concepts from newer games into older ones, since the Seasons concept is basically life from Diablo 3 Seasons.
Deckard Cain has been in Diablo since the beginning.
One thing is clear -- a shared stash is crucial for a Diablo game, and Diablo 4 needs to have one.
Not every game has DLC, of course, but I think Diablo 3 did when it introduced the Necromancer class as a downloadable pack.
