Get those fists pumping: Mike Sorrentino is days away from his prison release.

** UPDATE : Sorrentino walked out of jail a free man Thursday morning. **

The Jersey Shore star -- affectionately known as "The Situation" -- is scheduled to be released from Otisville Federal Correctional Institution on Thursday, Sept. 12 after an 8-month stint for tax evasion, according to a report from Radar Online.

The 37-year-old celeb will have to change clothes, complete paperwork, go through an identification process and more before he walks away a free man, according to the Receiving and Discharge Manual obtained by Radar Online.

Sorrentino shared the prison's address with fans before he went behind bars in January and has been receiving fan mail and supportive letters ever since.

Photos of a visit from "Jersey Shore" cast members Pauly DelVecchio, Vinny Guadagnino, along with his wife Lauren, were posted to his social media accounts last spring.

Sorrentino has reportedly befriended Fyre Festival co-founder Billy McFarland, formerly of Millburn, DelVecchio and Guadagnino said in an interview with Jenny McCarthy on her SiriusXM show.

McFarland was sentenced to six years in the same prison on fraud charges following his failed festival in the Bahamas, planned with Saddle River's Ja Rule.

Lauren said on Instagram last week she was making a playlist for her husband's release.
