And the new season will most likely start with 5.4, which is still quite a ways out. However, unless something was changed, 5.3 (which should be out in a few weeks) will add a catch-up mechanic for rated PvP. So while you might start off behind in the current season, you'll be able to catch up quicker than in previous ones once the patch hits.
