The 83-year-old disgraced comedian will be heading home after Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned his sexual assault conviction on Wednesday.

Cosby has served more than two years in a state prison near Philadelphia after he was convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault in 2018 for an incident involving Temple University employee Andrea Constand.

Cosby's arrest came just 12 days before the statute of limitations expired.

The star -- who was at one time dubbed as "America's Dad" -- is scheduled to be released from prison any moment, revealed his family's longtime spokesperson Andrew Wyatt.

As for Cosby's wife of 57 years, Camille Cosby, Wyatt says she's "excited" over the "amazing" news.

Camille has publicly backed her husband's innocence, despite 60 women stepping forward with allegations against the comedian, including models Janice Dickinson and Beverly Johnson.

Constad wrote a victim impact statement following Cosby's conviction.

"When the sexual assault happened, I was a young woman brimming with confidence, and looking forward to a future bright with possibilities," she stated. "Now, almost 15 years later, I'm a middle-aged woman who's been stuck in a holding pattern most of her adult life, unable to heal fully or to move forward."

"Bill Cosby took my beautiful, healthy young spirit and crushed it," she wrote. "He robbed me of my health and vitality, my open nature, and my trust in myself and others."

Cosby opted to serving the full decade behind bars instead of showing remorse for the encounter with Constand.

In May, Cosby was denied parole after refusing to not only participate, but failing to complete a court-ordered treatment program for sex offenders.
