The news was confirmed on Dublin's website earlier today, and will give the side a much-needed boost ahead of the start of the Championship season next month.
Since taking over four years ago, Gavin has landed three All-Ireland championships and four Leinster titles for the Dubs.
He has also overseen his side's record-breaking 36-match unbeaten run, which was finally ended in the Division 1 Final against arch-rivals Kerry last month.
A statement on the Dublin GAA website this afternoon said: "We are delighted to announce that Jim Gavin has agreed to remain as manager of the Dublin Senior Football Team for another 2 years, until the conclusion of the 2019 championship.
"Jim and all of his backroom team have already contributed so much time & hard-work to the Dublin team and we thank them all for their continued efforts."
