Little's initial contract ran until the end of this season, but chairman Neville Dickens and his fellow directors have continued to show faith in their manager despite disappointing defeats.
"I would like to think there are some happy supporters on hearing this news, but I accept that some will be disappointed with results over the last three months," Little added.
"What I would say is that our current plight is something that has gone for the last three years and it is something we have tried hard to put right in a short space of time.
"To those supporters who might be a little critical of myself, I would say 'look, judge me on the team I put together next season'.
"My job is to build on the field of play and I'm looking forward to next season, irrespective of what happens in our last five games of this year, building an exciting, strong team that will be very competitive and successful.
"After the last few years, everybody deserves a team on the pitch that wins football matches and that's exactly what I'll be looking to try and do next season."
