The quartet were set to see their existing deals expire at the end of June but they have put pen to paper on one-year extensions.
Left-back Hoganson, 19, and forward Doyle, 21, will remain part of the Rams' Under-21 squad for next season but it is hoped Doyle will also go out on loan to gain first-team experience.
Atkins, 23, is also expected to undertake a loan stint but fellow goalkeeper Deeney, 30, will provide back-up for first-choice stopper Lee Grant when he returns to Pride Park on a free transfer from Burnley in the summer.
