"I'm very excited to be rejoining the Sky Sports F1 team from the 2019 season," said Chandhok, who recently became a father for the first time.
"With their long-term commitment to Formula 1 and the team of people that's in place, it's a great time to return.
"I believe that I've been able to develop and offer viewers a unique perspective of someone with a technical, strategic and historical knowledge of the sport combined with the experience of 18 years of driving racing cars."
Scott Young, Head of F1 at Sky Sports, said: "We are delighted that Karun has decided to return to Sky Sports F1. Our team is renowned for their knowledge and credibility and Karun, who is a familiar and respected member within the paddock, will elevate our ability to tell the F1 story as it unfolds live across our screens.
"This is an exciting time to be a part of the sport and our commitment to our customers is our daily focus as we prepare for a new era in live F1 coverage."
