The League of Legends ranked seasons that have taken place so far started and concluded in the same data range. Season 9 will end on November 19th.
It is impossible to predict the exact time of the day, so the countdown below is just an approximation timed to the midnight of the indicated day.
Update: The Summoner’s Rift 2019 Ranked Season will end on November 19th. This could change if something weird happens; we’ll let you know if it does.

All the League of Legends ranked seasons have a similar duration (but the first one), so it is rather simple to figure out when the next season will end.
Usually, Riot reveals the exact date a few weeks or a month before the conclusion of the current season via a post on their social media. I will update this page and the countdown as soon as fresh news is available.
From season 8 to 9
Ed “SapMagic” Altorfer (Riot Games lead designer on meta game systems) announced with a tweet the start of the preseason and of the 9th ranked season:
8.23 (Nov 21) - Preseason starts, gameplay changes.
8.24 - Ranked changes start to go out (tiers, placements).
9.1 - Mostly for stabilizing stuff.
9.2 (Jan 23) - The season starts.
