The 24-year-old England Knights international joined the Catalans from Widnes in 2019 and scored eight tries in 14 appearances last season for the Super League club.
Whitley said: “I’m really happy to be re-signing with the Dragons.
“It’s a club I feel is heading in the right direction and I’m looking forward to being a part of this good group of players and staff for another two years.
“After reaching the semi-finals in 2020, I’m looking to push on this next upcoming season to win something for this great club.”
