Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino will be released from prison Thursday

This "Jersey Shore" star will soon be in a better situation.

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is set to be released from a federal prison in Otisville, N.Y., on Thursday after serving eight months for tax evasion, prison records show and a rep for the reality TV star confirmed to the Daily News.

"We can confirm that the projected date of Michael Sorrentino's release from the custody of the Bureau of Prisons is Sept. 12, 2019," a rep for the Federal Bureau of Prisons told The News.

"For privacy, safety and security reasons, we do not provide specific information on the timing or manner of inmate releases."

Sorrentino, 38, has been doing time at the Otisville Federal Correctional Institute since reporting to the facility in January.

His sentencing came down last October, and he married longtime love Lauren Pesce in November before going behind bars.

The reality star's brother, Marc, was ordered to two years in prison in the tax evasion case.

Sorrentino's prison stay has been a storyline on his MTV series "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation," and some of his co-stars visited him at the institute in May.
