The England Twenty20 opener has extended his stay with the county he joined from Hampshire in 2012 after previously turning out for Rajasthan Royals and Deccan Chargers in the IPL.
And the 33-year-old left-handed batsman says he is delighted to commit his future to Nottinghamshire as he eyes domestic success with the side who last won the County Championship in 2010.
"I've played in the IPL and I feel as though I've ticked that off my list and now I want to win more trophies with Nottinghamshire," said Lumb.
"The four-day game is the pinnacle of country cricket and I take pride in my responsibility to contribute consistently as a senior player."
Director of cricket Mick Newell added: "Michael has become a key figure for us in all formats and we were very keen to secure his commitment with an extended contract.
"The IPL was a factor in the negotiations but it was clear that his ambitions were identical to the aims of the squad and his batting will be important in enabling us to achieve them."
Nottinghamshire have already reached agreements with Lumb's international colleagues Samit Patel and Alex Hales enabling the duo to negotiate deals to play in next year's IPL.
