Fetch Request header not sending cookies in chrome (v90.0.44), working in Firefox(v88.0) (JS)

  cookies, cors, fetch, google-chrome, javascript

Really struggling on getting a Fetch API call to send cookies along in the request headers in Chrome (also they are not being set from ‘Set-Cookie’ response headers from returned API responses in Chrome). Both however, work on Firefox.

Feel like I’ve tried a million solutions here, can someone explain what I’m guessing is the SameSite issues for Chrome?

Our base api URL is https://stage-api-v2.cbb.play

Aliased hosts file for localhost:       localhost       local.cbb.play

Cookie that is set that we are trying to forward along

import * as cookie from 'cookie';
import { NextApiRequest, NextApiResponse } from 'next';

export default (req: NextApiRequest, res: NextApiResponse) => {
        cookie.serialize('refresh_token', req.body.token, {
            httpOnly: true,
            maxAge: 60 * 60,
            secure: process.env.NODE_ENV === 'production',
            path: '/',
            sameSite: 'lax',
            domain: '.cbb.play',
    res.statusCode = 200;
    res.json({ success: true });

Front end code that calls the API:

async function renewSession(payload) {
    return await fetch(process.env.BASE_URL + '/api/user/renew-session', {
        method: 'POST',
        credentials: 'include',
        headers: { 'Content-type': 'application/json' },
        body: JSON.stringify(payload)
