The 24-year-old is a product of the Gloucester academy and has been in impressive form this season, earning a call-up to train with England ahead of the Autumn internationals.
England centre Billy Twelvetrees and full-back Rob Cook have also recently committed their futures to Gloucester, and director of rugby Nigel Davies is looking forward to seeing Trinder and Twelvetrees operate together in the coming seasons.
"We're very pleased," said Davies. "Henry can form a formidable midfield partnership with Billy Twelvetrees which, moving forward, will underpin Gloucester. He's been in superb form so far this season and I firmly believe will only get better.
"It bodes well that, with the likes of Billy and Rob Cook already having signed, these players want to stay with Gloucester Rugby and help drive the club forward.
"When players of this quality want to sign for us, and you have to remember that it's a very competitive market out there and that they'd be coveted by any club, it speaks volumes of the ambition of the club and the environment that we've worked hard to create."
Trinder added: "I'm very happy to get it all done. It's been a busy last month or so with the England call-up, so it's great to get it all out of the way so that I can focus on my rugby.
"Kingsholm is a fantastic place to play rugby and, after I spoke with Nigel and he outlined where he's hoping to take the club in the future, I wanted to be part of that.
"I think it would be fair to say we've not hit our stride fully yet this season, but we've got a really talented squad and I know we've got more to deliver than we've shown so far.
"I'm looking forward to playing my part and helping the side realise its potential this season and beyond."
