"Episode 53: Jack and the Kendo Class", Samurai Jack ended its run with 52 episodes.

No, Tartakovsky wanted to make one with Frederator Studios films and J. J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions. Frederator Studios had all kinds of financial problems, but it still would've gotten made if J. J. Abrams remained on the project, since apparently whenever hollywood suits hear Abrams is involved, they have a "shut up and take my money" reaction. But Abrams got signed to make the first Star Trek movie and didn't have time to be involved in promoting the idea, so Tartakovsky put the project on hold.
After that, Sym-Bionic Titan got cancelled and Tartakovsky left the Cartoon Network animation division and signed with Sony Pictures Animation and did Hotel Transylvania for them, which Sony considered a success. So they've picked Tartakovsky to direct the next Popeye animated movie, it's supposedly an "important" project for Sony.
Tartakovsky still says he wants to make a film concluding Samurai Jack, but I think that's just to stop fans from rioting. He seems to be Sony's golden boy for now and he doesn't seem to be on very good terms with Time Warner anymore, and they're the ones holding the rights to Samurai Jack.
