Isa is the ninth player this season to put pen-to-paper on a fresh terms and the 25-year-old is excited to be part of the long-term future at the Select Security Stadium.
Widnes have enjoyed a flying start to the season despite recent defeats, although Denis Betts' men are still sixth in the table with seven wins from 12 to their name.
"I'm really excited about the future at Widnes," the former Melbourne and Castleford man told the club's official website. "I'm really enjoying my footy here - it's a great club and one which is on a real upward curve.
"We've got a great bunch of players here and we are all committed to getting the Club back to where it should be, and that's right at the top of the game.
"The supporters have been great with me too and I'm enjoying the work off the field in the community. It's just a good time to be involved as we really look to get to the next level this year."
Isa is now tied to the club until the end of the 2016 Super League campaign and Betts is pleased the club's utility forward will be around for the next two seasons.
"I'm really pleased Willie has signed. I've been impressed with his contribution to our unit this year. He's come off the wing/centre and into the forward pack, essentially like a loose-forward, and he's done a tremendous job," said Betts.
"His energy and enthusiasm around the place is really infectious and you can see that by the way he plays the game.
"He's really committed and the way he lives his life off the field is the way he lives it on it and he's a real pro. He wants to be the best he can be and he's a great personality at the Vikings and we are pleased to have him here in our environment."
