Laravel/Lumen API and Sessions

I have a laravel app which is my main website and now have an API built with lumen.

So far the setup is like so

client(user) ----> webserver(laravel) -----> API server(lumen)

Now traditionally, all session related duties will be carried out by the webserver things like logging in a user. webserver runs a script that checks db for user and then if valid starts a session and then sends a session cookie back to the user to identify them later.

Now I presume that what happens if I move those scripts to the API server is that a client requesting to login will tell that to the webserver who will then go off to the API server. The API server performs the db check and if valid starts a session and sends a session cookie back to the webserver and thats it because to the API server the webserver is the client so the user never get’s a session cookie saved in his browser rather the session is between the webserver and API server

Please can anyone confirm if this is correct. As I’ve deployed this exact infrastructure and this is the behaviour I’m observing.

Is this setup even advisable or possible?

How can i implement something similar to this where the API server does all the work and the webserver simply holds the views/pages and logic scripts?
