We use supershadow methods to derive new expressions for superconformal blocks in 4d N = 1 superconformal field theories. We analyze the four-point function ⟨A_1A^†_2B_1B^†_2⟩, where A_i and ℬ_i are scalar superconformal primary operators with arbitrary dimension and R-charge and the exchanged operator is neutral under R-symmetry. Previously studied superconformal blocks for chiral operators and conserved currents are special cases of our general results.
