The wicketkeeper-batsman has been with the south coast club since 2001 and went on to earn his county cap in 2003.
The 32-year-old has made more than 7,500 runs for Sussex for whom he has posted 18 first-class centuries in 144 matches.
Prior had been a regular for England since making his Test debut in 2007 against the West Indies at Lord's, but was dropped during the recent Ashes tour of Australia.
Prior, who has appeared in 75 Test matches in his international career, said in a statement: "I'm absolutely delighted to sign another contract for Sussex.
"It is an honour to continue to be part of the club where I have spent my professional career.
"I am very much looking forward to helping Sussex compete for trophies again this season."
Mark Robinson, the club's professional cricket manager, added: "We're really delighted to have Matt confirmed for the next two summers.
"He not only brings an incredible playing talent but a lot of experience with him every time he wears the Sussex Martlets."
