The German head coach has put pen to paper on a three-year contract with first-team assistants Christoph Buhler and Andrew Hughes also signing new deals, all three having 12 months left on their contracts.
With various rival clubs across Europe reported to be keen on enticing Wagner away from West Yorkshire, this will finally put an end to the speculation.
The 46-year-old took over Huddersfield Town in November 2015 and after keeping the Terriers in the Championship, the following season he guided them to the Premier League for the first time where they finished in 16th place.
Following his promotion Wagner said: “The decision to extend my stay at this club was not a difficult one. The relationship Christoph, Andy and I have with Dean, the rest of the board, the staff and the supporters is special.
“We’ve achieved some incredible things together in two and a half years and now I’m excited about the future.
“We still have a lot of work to do as we adapt to life in the Premier League, but this club and its people have the ambition, desire and attitude to take this challenge on.”
Town chairman Dean Hoyle said: “I’m very happy that we can announce David, Christoph and Andrew’s new contracts today on the back of a superb debut Premier League season.
“I understand why David is so talked about and sought-after given the things he has achieved here; he’s a very talented head coach and has played a huge role in transforming Huddersfield Town into the club it is today.
“However, I have never had any doubts about David’s future. Time and time again, he has shown his commitment to Huddersfield Town, as the club has demonstrated its commitment to him.”
