'It's Happening': This Is How Mike Told Lauren About His Jersey Shore Jail Release

It's been eight long months without Big Daddy Sitch

Lauren has been waiting for her hubby Mike to be released from jail -- and so has his Jersey Shore family vacation. And in the sneak peek from the show's upcoming premiere -- arriving one week from today -- Mrs. Sorrentino gets a very important phone call from her man.

"Hi, honeys! It's happening," Mike says in the clip above about his prison end date after eight months behind bars.

How does Lauren respond, and how did his fellow cast members spend their last moments without their brother? Hint: A note was involved. No, not that note. Watch the video, and do not miss brand-new episodes beginning on February 27 at 8/7c!
