Referendum 121, proposing to upgrade the relay chain to runtime 9420 (from 9370), is now up for vote. Among many other changes, this would enable Polkadot OpenGov.
OpenGov removes the Council and Technical Committee, and creates an even more democratic and open process to on-chain governance while maintaining security. For details, see the wiki.
Note that this will not immediately remove the traditional Gov1 processes. Both will run in tandem until and unless another governance decision removes Gov1.
