The 33-year-old had been linked with a return to the Premier League during the current transfer window, as well as possible moves to Inter Milan and Napoli.
"Over the last few weeks I have realised just how much the club wanted me to stay," said Dzeko.
"My conversations with the board, the work we've been doing with the coach, the relationship with my team-mates and the love of the fans has all made me realise once again what I had already learned during these four years - that Rome is my home.
"Here there is everything we need to win something and I am delighted to be able to stay here even longer."
Thought the transfer window was closed? Wrong. Across Europe, plenty of deals are still being done, with Premier League players still able to move to the continent.
The transfer window for Spain's La Liga, Italy's Serie A, Germany's Bundesliga and France's Ligue 1 closes at varying times on Monday, September 2. Meanwhile, League One, League Two and Scottish clubs' can also do deals until September 2.
