The Coronation Street actor, who has played Kevin Webster since 1983, had originally been bailed until tomorrow (Wednesday).
However, that has been extended until next year as the investigation continues, Greater Manchester Police have confirmed.
"A 46-year-old man arrested on suspicion of committing a historic sexual offence has been rebailed until the second week of January as police continue their investigations," a spokeswoman said in a statement.
Le Vell, real name Michael Turner, has "strenuously" denied the claims following his arrest in September.
Fellow cast member Sally Dynevor, who portrays his on-screen wife Sally, has spoken out in defence of the star.
