The podcast launch, which is her first onscreen adventure since the 2010 romantic comedy "Easy A," comes after a challenging year marked by a series of 5150 holds, which raised concerns about her well-being.

Bynes raised concerns in March for a puzzling and concerning incident where she was seen wandering the streets aimlessly and even hitchhiking from Hollywood to Beverly Hills. Sources told the news outlet that she must have been on the street for several days before she was found naked, and she was subsequently placed on a psychiatric hold at the time.

"Amanda has left the medical facility on her own recognizance," a source told the Daily Mail after her treatment. "She was very cooperative and participated in her recovery; the staff supported her decision to leave as she had successfully completed the treatment program."

Authorities considered her "a danger to herself and others" in June and placed her back on 5150 psychiatric hold after she called the cops on herself.
