multiple, sequential fetch() Promise

I have to make a sequence of fetch() Promise: I have only 1 url at a time, this means only 1 fetch() promise. Every time I receive a json,this one contains an url for another json, so I have to make another fetch() promise.

I'm able to work with multiple promise, but in this case I can't do Promise.all(), because I don't have all the url, but only one.

This example doesn't work, it all freezes.

function fetchNextJson(json_url) 
{
    return fetch(json_url, {
            method: 'get'
        })
        .then(function(response) {
            return response.json();
        })
        .then(function(json) {
            console.log(json);
            return json;
        })
        .catch(function(err) {
            console.log('error: ' + error);
        });
}


function getItems(next_json_url) 
{
    if (!(next_json_url)) return;

    get_items = fetchNextJson(next_json_url);

    interval = $q.when(get_items).then(function(response) {
        console.log(response);
        next_json_url = response.Pagination.NextPage.Href;
    });

    getItems(next_json_url);
}


var next_json_url = 'http://localhost:3000/one';

getItems(next_json_url);

You can use recursion

function fetchNextJson(json_url) {
    return fetch(json_url, {
            method: 'get'
        })
        .then(function(response) {
            return response.json();
        })
        .then(function(json) {
            results.push(json);
            return json.Pagination.NextPage.Href 
                   ? fetchNextJson(json.Pagination.NextPage.Href)
                   : results
        })
        .catch(function(err) {
            console.log('error: ' + error);
        });
}


var next_json_url = 'http://localhost:3000/one';
var results = [];

fetchNextJson(json_url).then(function(res) {
  console.log(res)
})
