Millions of Prince fans, who fruitlessly awaited the release of new music on the anniversary of the legend’s death, will finally be able to hear the songs during a now-developing reality show, the media has reported.

Prince’s estate is getting into the reality show game, which is why they went to great legal lengths to shut down the release of the EP Deliverance,

According to sources close to Prince’s heirs, the reality show will feature members of Prince’s family and will focus on how their lives have changed since he died.

The family is reportedly embroiled in a legal battle with musician George Ian Boxill, the producer of the Deliverance EP, to keep the music dormant until they can debut it on the show. Therefore, fans of the late musical genius will be able finally to hear the unreleased tracks.

There is no word, however, as to when the show will come to fruition so the music can see the light of day.

The reality show is still in early development. They have a production company on board, but few other details have been released, TMZ reported.

Meanwhile, the court has ordered Boxill to relinquish the songs back to the estate, but Boxill is appealing the ruling.

Prince, universally considered one of the most versatile musicians who ever lived, died at age 57 at his estate in suburban Minneapolis from an overdose of powerful prescription medication.
