Yes, it is easily extended and is often extended. The Consular Officer adjudicating your Visa will routinely and automatically extend the Expiration Date shown on your NOA2. It will probably be extended in four month intervals but I do not know that it is written how long the extension will be.

You do not need to call anyone. You should, as a courtesy and matter of record, send an email to the Embassy or Consulate where the Fiance(e) will be interviewing. Give them the Name and case # and say you would like to extend the Expiration date on the petition. This is not absolutely necessary but is nice to let them know the petition is still active. Others will come by and say you do no9t need to do this, but I don't like the idea of not doing anything.

It will not affect the process in any other way.

Also, it's a good idea to take new letters of intent from both parties to the interview if your NOA2 will have expired by then. Some consulates use that to extend the 'shelf life' of the approval as well (London does).
