"I want to finish off my rugby at the Blues where it all started so I'm excited to head back and re-join the team."
Blues coach Sir John Kirwan said he was thrilled to welcome Woodcock back.
"We're trying to build a lasting franchise so we've got a lot of young guys and to have someone with his experience is fantastic.
"I see him as one of our people. He's had his OE and now he's back so I think he'll add plenty of value to this team."
The Blues squad for next season will be announced on October 30.
