New jerseys every season, I don't believe, will ever happen as long as the North American style of jersey is done.

North American jerseys are generally done by cutting up fabric and sewing it together into basic patterns. European jerseys are all sublimated, allowing for extremely complex designs to exist.

North American styles are more labor-intensive to make, meaning that there's a much larger minimum order that must be placed to stock stores with them. They're more costly to make, plus the customization is done differently. The fact that a bad year may mean sitting on jersey stock for years to come means that the teams themselves would reject the idea of new styles every year, regardless of what the marketplace may or may not dictate.
