The FA say that it will be structured to ensure that Premier League matches would still be played every weekend over that period.
"Prime Video will be an excellent service on which fans can consume live Premier League football - including for the first time in the United Kingdom a full round of matches - and we look forward to working with them from season 2019-20 onwards".
The break will only apply to the Premier League, though, with a full EFL programme continuing over the break.
Another change is that The FA Cup fifth round games will move to mid-week, with no replays.
"It is now impractical even if it was desirable for the EFL to do so", said EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey, citing the 46-game seasons and resulting promotion playoffs.
"This is not seen to be a way and won't be [of making money]", said Martin Glenn, the chief executive of the Football Association.
Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore said the league's revenue sharing remained the most equitable in Europe but it was time to amend an agreement dating back to 1992.
"Today's announcement proves that football can come together for the good of the game,"Glenn added". We hope it will provide the appropriate recovery time for players and have the positive impact on player and team performance that it is created to deliver. "We will look to showcase the EFL during the two week period". "As we head into summer worldwide tournaments in the future we are sure that this mid-season break will prove to be a valuable addition for our players".
In a statement, EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey said "it is now impractical even if it was desirable for the EFL" to take part in the mid-season break because of the scheduling challenges of playing 46-game seasons and play-offs.
