The veteran defender is in his second spell with Parma, having rejoined the club from Lazio in 2005.
He made 23 appearances in Serie A last season as former coach Claudio Ranieri masterminded the club's escape from the relegation zone.
Couto's presence remains a vital tool in Parma's squad, despite the fact that the former Portugal international will celebrate his 38th birthday in August.
The centre-half has signed a new one-year contract which will take him through to a fifth season in Parma colours over two stints.
