Yup. Though I wish Tolkien told us more of what happened after the series ended. Like whether or not the dwarves rebuilt moria, what happened to the elves that stayed in Middle Earth, did men rebuild Arnor and Osgiliath and Minas Ithil...
wasn't arnor split into three different pieces because men couldn't learn to get past eacother's petty differences? Wouldn't the black numenoreans attack the men who are rebuilding? And, also, couldn't another balrog come and retake moria, or were they all killed?

There actually may be 3 still left in Middle Earth after the series. There were originally 5 wizards who arrived around year 1000 of the Third Age. 2 were blue wizards who disappeared into the Barbaric East(I can't find a map of the east of Middle Earth) and these blue ones never came back. Saruman the White was their chief and he returned from the East. We all know he fortified Isengard and turned traitor. There was Radagast but he fell so far in love with the animals of Middle Earth that he forgot his mission to stop Sauron. And then of course there was Gandalf. Saruman is dead and Gandalf back in the Undying Lands. Assuming the blue ones aren't dead there are still 3 wizards(istari) left running around.
