You can use RDATE:
<abbr class="rdate" title="20010910/20020901,20050101/20070122"><abbr
title="20010910" class="dtstart">9/01</abbr>–9/02, 1/05–Present</abbr>
you aren't the first person to ask about this, so maybe we should
document more information about this on the wiki.

This could be a combination of RDATE and an iSO date for each season.
I hope this helps,
