Terry’s deal with the club was set to expire over the summer, but his phenomenal form has prompted the club to offer him fresh terms for another season at least.
“After adding another major trophy to my collection this month I hope myself, the players and manager can continue to bring success to our club,” Terry said.
“Playing for this great club makes me so proud. And as always I would like to thank the fans who have continually supported me.”
Manager Jose Mourinho also expressed his delight at the deal, praising his captain for being able to maintain a high level of consistency over the course of a long and difficult campaign.
“This new contract is not to say ‘thank you very much’; it is because John continues to perform,” Mourinho said.
“He is a top defender. I am happy that he completely deserves this new contract after a season where he has already played 40 matches.”
