Fans and Hollywood missed Amanda Bynes when she quit acting and went away for the last few years. She got into trouble with the law a few times, and even suffered from mental health problems. But it seems the worst is over. Everybody was happy when, in June 2017, the former star and fashion student spoke about making a comeback to TV in 2018. Now, her lawyer clarified that Bynes is getting scripts. 

There is good news for fans of Amanda Bynes, as the 31-year-old is getting ready to make a comeback to the entertainment world. Bynes will be finishing her course in fashion this year, and is busy charting out plans to be back in the industry.

Amanda Bynes became famous as a child star in the late 1990s and early 2000s in the Nickelodeon series, All That and The Amanda Show. She later appeared on the sitcom What I Like About You from 2002 to 2006. Though her last film was in 2010, people still remember her and are asking where Amanda Bynes is now.

Dark Years

In these years when she was MIA from the industry, Bynes was reportedly having a very rough time. Not only did she get in trouble with the law several times, she was also suffering from mental health problems. Things came to a head when she was arrested for allegedly starting a small fire in the driveway of a stranger’s house in Ventura County, near Los Angeles, California in 2013.

Signs of Stirring

She was given a mental health evaluation by authorities and later released into the care of her parents. Thankfully, the worst is over. In June 2017 Bynes gave her first interview in four years. She revealed, “I want to do TV, maybe a few guest spots on some shows that I’m a fan of and maybe another TV show that I’m the star of it.”
