According to CNN, Osaka says in a press release that she has taken her platform for granted. 

“I feel like the platform that I have right now is something that I used to take for granted, and for me I feel like I should be using it for something,” Osaka said. “I believe, instead of following, you have to make your own path.” 

The release of the series is set for July 16.
