The episode was never made, but The Simpsons showrunner AJ Jean has revealed the script for the Prince special.

The first scene sees Lisa trying to buy tickets to see Prince play in Springfield but a spider keeps getting in the way.

The second scene sees Marge's sister Selma fangirling all over Prince, who is very impressed that she's seen Under the Cherry Moon...

There's no word on whether or not the episode will ever be made now that Prince has passed away.

If it is, he'll join the ranks of fellow stars Michael Jackson, U2, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and more.

He did make one brief cameo in Treehouse of Horror XIX but an entire purple episode would be a much more fitting tribute.
