Nuno took over at Molineux in 2017 and oversaw the club's rise from the Championship to the Premier League.
"Sunday will be a very emotional day, but I am so happy that the fans will be back in Molineux and we can share one last special moment together, as one pack," the Portuguese manager said.
The past two years have been extremely gruelling for Wolves, whose small squad has been stretched to its limit due to the hectic fixture schedule and key injuries to players like Raul Jimenez.
The club have consequently endured some stagnation, but Premier League survival puts the club in a strong position for Nuno's successor to come into.
