Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is on his way back to the shore.

The MTV “Jersey Shore” star was released from prison Thursday after serving an eight-month sentence for tax evasion, inmate records from the Federal Bureau of Prisons indicate.

“We are elated to finally close this chapter of our life. Thank you to our family, friends and fans for the continuous love and support during this time, it brought us so much peace and comfort,” Sorrentino, 37, said in a statement. “We look forward to continuing our life as husband and wife and working on baby situations! We truly believe that the comeback is ALWAYS greater than the setback and we can’t wait to show the world ours.”

Sorrentino surrendered in January to the Otisville Correctional Facility in New York after he was sentenced to tax offenses related to nearly $9 million in income. He also told the judge that he was overcoming years of drug and alcohol abuse.

His brother, Marc Sorrentino, was also sentenced two years in the case.
